Known as Slag Beach, this hidden gem is often overlooked by visitors who come to explore the old buildings and abandoned structures of Fayette's historic townsite. Head past the former settlement down toward the waterfront and you'll spot this gorgeous secluded beach surrounded by rocks and a seriously scenic tree-covered landscape.
