The Legacy Trail is a new OHV loop trail traversing the Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park. The park features six beehive-shaped charcoal ovens that were used from 1876 through 1879 to help process rich silver ore that was discovered in the area. The OHV Trail connects into the Ward Mountain OHV Trail System and thousands of acres of Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service lands.
Park is open 365 days a year.
Ward Charcoal Ovens is located 20 miles south of the town of Ely, on Cave Valley Road, in White Pine County.
