From Ivanhoe to Austinville is a 2.8 mile, easy, slight downhill gradient with parking available at Ivanhoe. As the trail follows the New River you will see the evidence of the area’s rich industrial history. Milepost 29 marks the location where lead was discovered here in 1756 and mined continuously for the next two hundred years. Perhaps the greatest highlight of this section however, is the seven hundred foot long bridge over the New River at the Ivanhoe River Bridge.
