Descending towards the IXL Kiln ruins

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Upon reaching the top of Cape Horn trail, a sense of anticipation builds, as you head down towards the ruins of the IXL lime kilns. This broad, well-maintained trail, was originally a busy wagon road used to transport logs to fire the kilns. It later became the primary transport route to move barrels from the Barrel Mill on Fall creek back to the main complex.
