Fairly easy access if you have GPS or a good map. The access from Snyder Hill Rd. is up a seasonal use road for two miles to a dead end with circle turn around and trailhead. This loop hike will take you through a well kept trail, a creek in the hollow and a lean to for camping. Great hike! Great hike featuring some old growth trees, well marked trail, beautiful walk along the "hollow" creek and a lean to if you wish to camp out.
A little muddy of a trail after light snow the night before... Relatively easy of a trail, well marked (blue and white blaze). Lovely scenery with a great number of different trees adding to the variety!
We tried this one the last weekend in April. There were no signs or no trail markings. The entrance to what we believed was the trail was partially blocked by brush piles. We walked around it but It was too wet due to late snow melt. We probably went a mile up the road and turned back at the high point. It was quiet as a church with dense pine on one side and deciduous forest on the other.
Great hike, worth the drive. Fairly remote parking area. Great elevation changes and the hollow area is magical. The lean to is well kept as is the trail.
