Stuarts Knob at Fairy Stone State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike at Fairy Stone State Park explores the historic and natural features of Stuarts Knob, rich with iron ore. Starting in the 1700s, this backwater experienced mining boom and bust, becoming a moonshiner’s paradise.
Later, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed a state park here. Today you can see vestiges of mining operations and an attendant community on CCC-built trails, all encapsulated in hilly wooded terrain enhanced with natural beauty, including a cleared view from the shoulder of Stuarts Knob."
