Description: This short (out and back – 3 miles round trip) trail runs along the Youghiogheny River upstream from Friendsville, MD. It follows an 1890s era railbed to an old logging community called Kendall (originally Krug). Little remains of the town of Kendall but in its heyday this busy mining and lumber town was the southern terminus of the Confluence & Oakland Railroad and the beginning of the Krug Lumber Railroad that had narrow gauge rail lines extending throughout the river valley.
NOTE: Trail is muddy during the spring and icy in the winter. Please stay on the trail at its terminus in Kendall as portions of area are privately owned.
