This area was very heavily mined from the mid 1800's through the 1940's. Much of the land was left in ruin. Over the last 20 years, efforts have been made to reclaim and reforest the properties and create man-made wetlands to purify the orange acidic water leaching from the former mining works. Hidden along the stream that parallels Reynolds Road, West Wheatfield Township, Indiana County, are the remains of small dams and other structures that were once part of a bustling economy. Reclamation efforts include a new flow channel and concrete bridge where vegetation has successfully been reestablished and the water is now clean. The view from on top of Fort Hill is just fabulous. And, on any given day one can hear the call of red tailed hawks as they glide in the winds above the valley floor. Hiking on an abandoned mining road or timber road will lead you to Roaring Run which also borders a state game lands property. This stream boasts one of the nicest water falls in the area. A short distance from the water falls, the stream meets the Conemaugh River after flowing under the Norfolk Southern Railroad. Do not trespass on railroad property or their right-of-way.! You can expect to encounter snakes....rattlesnakes and copperheads are in this area and are dangerous.
