Nice 7 mile trail just past the Sycamore trail on the left hand side if you park at the fire tower. Starts out weaving on a ridge before you hit a set of switchbacks taking you down through the ravines. The trail has a few creek crossings before heading up to the Grubb Ridge parking lot. After you hit the parking lot, head west down the road for a little bit until you see the trail pick up on the left. This is part of the Grubb Ridge trail and will eventually take you to a section that branches right or left. Head left when it says Martin Hollow Trail in order to complete the loop back to the fire tower lot. Lots to see with about 2400 ft in elevation gain along the way.
