A big barrel beside the trail34 viewsOk, this is Oil Creek tunnel trail, it's a offshoot of Elk park ".5 mile one way" at the end is a awsome site. you walk past a old hmesite and then up a little to a open mine. In front of the mine there is a boiler that must be around 3-5 tons total! The mine is open and you can look into it. Take a flashlight and go for it! wear waterproof shoes though.
