Old Furnace Loop Trails

in Snow Hill Maryland

Red Furnace Loop - 6.2 miles
The longest of the three loop trails connects Furnace Town with the Algonquin Cross County Trail, with about half of the red loop concurrent with the Algonquin Cross County Trail. The red loop trail begins north of Furnace Town on Millville Road. A variety of unique forest communities are found on this trail, including inland sand dunes, low land swamps, and pine flats. This loop connects with both the Orange and Yellow Loops for additional opportunities.
Orange Furnace Loop - 3.9 miles
This loop begins at the intersection of the Algonquin Cross County Trail and Forest Road. The trail traverses through multiple forest types and ages. An additional 0.6 miles on Forest Road connects this loop.
Yellow Furnace Loop - 1.8 miles
The yellow loop trail is the shortest of the three loops. The yellow loop trail passes through a globally rare shortleaf pine and mixed oak forest community that developed on an inland sand dune. Different forest management activities have been used to improve and conserve this community, including seed tree harvests, prescribed fire, and commercial thinning.
