Bicycle the Route of an Historic Railroad on the Mountain Goat Trail

Old coal railroad route converted to a rail-trail, a bike and running path open to the public. From 1856 to 1985, the Mountain Goat Railroad carried coal and passengers over the Cumberland Plateau. It was called the Mountain Goat because the climb onto the Plateau was one of the steepest railroad ascents in the world.
