This is a cool little destination in Londonderry. Londonderry was once a bustling town and had the second highest production of iron in North America. This means there are lots of remnants to explore around there. One of the coolest one is a series of old coke ovens lined up in the forest mere feet from a well travelled road.

Go to the coke ovens and then walk towards the river to see the huge slag piles that are left from that industrial area.

Directions:

Park at intersection of Base Line Rd and Broadway street. On north side of Base Line rd, there is an atv path. Take it and within a few metres go totally east. Within a few ten of metres, the slopes goes up and the coke ovens are lined up right there around ( 45°28'37.92"N, 63°36'4.87"W). Once you have done this part hike to 45°28'41.41"N, 63°36'28.40"W to see the slag piles
