“The Iron Goat Trail is an 8-mile trail that runs along the old Great Northern Railway.”— Justin S.
There are more than tunnels and timber to tell the rail story (do not enter tunnels due to unsafe conditions). Signs along the way also tell of the people that built the railway. In a little over three miles, reach the paved turn off to the right and the start of the alternative trailhead by the red caboose.
