In front of the Kiln Ruins

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The trail turns left to reach the front of the kilns. Do not take the trail that goes straight ahead, as this will take you up to the Felton-Empire road. These once proud kilns now require timber support to prevent their collapse. A total of 15 to 17 men were involved in the operations. The fires were kept burning, 24 hours a day for 3-4 day periods. Most of the workers lived in cabins located around the kilns and barrel mill.
