  • I have wanted to visit the site for years and finally made it! Interesting to see and walk around the ovens and read about their history.  more »
  • This was a neat little side trip. The plaques were very informative and interesting. There are several hiking trails inside the park in addition to the Ovens.  more »

  • Best example I have ever found of these ovens. Very well preserved. Very clean park. Good trails that cross a very surprising rushing creek. Highly recommend.
  • Neat piece of history. Only takes a Max of 30 minutes to read the info and your the furnaces. There are trails if you enjoy the hiking
