Description

Travel down the Headhouse Trail for a peek into the ins and outs of mining at the Nuttallburg coal mine site. Enjoy the rusting remains of a once bustling coal mine, taking time to visit the multitude of displays explaining day to day operations at Nuttallburg, as well as the coal extraction process. For a grander Nuttallburg experience, make your way down the Conveyor Trail and discover the remnants of Nuttallburg's coal processing plants and adjoining town.
