Union Furnace Preserve At A Glance...
About Union Furnace Preserve
This 170-acre wooded preserve bordering Spruce Run Reservoir is named for the colonial ironworks that flourished here from 1742 to 1781. A single hiking trail runs through Union Furnace. The trailhead is located across from the Spruce Run Parking Area. Part of the trail follows a historic mill race which used to supply water to the nearby Union Mill. Then it climbs up the hill and emerges onto Serpentine Drive. The trail is part of the Highlands Trail which extends 150 miles from Storm King Mountain on the Hudson River in New York south to Riegelsville on the Delaware River in New Jersey. Blazed with teal-colored diamonds, the trail combines established trails, new trails, and road walking, and displays the scenic beauty of the Highlands region.
