More about Mine Hill Preserve
Recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, Mine Hill is the site of a 19th century iron mine and furnace complex. The Roxbury Land Trust acquired the preserve in 1978 and restored and stabilized the significant stone and brick structural remains of the furnace complex. These historic structures are located 0.2 miles from the kiosk near the parking lot. At the complex interpretive signs detail the iron-making process, Mine Hill’s history and its impact on the region. The Main Loop (blue blazes) is a moderately difficult, 3.5-mile trail.
