Over 100 years ago, the building now known as the Headwaters Education Center (HEC) served as an engine house to store the locomotives that hauled logs to the lumber mill at Falk. In 2008, the engine house was dismantled and moved to its new location along the Elk River Trail. Find out how to get there on our directions page.
Thanks to dedicated volunteers, the HEC is open every Sunday from 12 to 3pm, June - August. Join us for educational activities or wander the train barn and enjoy interpretive displays that describe Headwaters Forest Reserve ecology and history.
