loud boats. trash. maybe good for a quick walk if you live nearby. But not worth the effort of a special trip. After hiking in nearby Big South Fork, the area is very loud with fishing boats and very disturbed. I decided to quit after about 10 minutes because of the noise, boat fumes, trash on the trail and general poor conditions. Again, good for a local person, not worth a special trip.
Big Hollow Trail. This trail is 11.7 miles but I did the bottom loop twice and came out at 12.7 miles. There are opportunities on the trail to shortcut it back. The trail is generally flat with few variations in steepness. Great trail for mountain biking or just someone who wants an easy hike in the woods. Not too much for scenery as I said the trail is flat.
Part of a 21 mile loop I hiked starting at First Creek parking lot.
First night: Stayed at First Creek campsite B
Walked to McCoy Hollow Trail
Second Night: Stayed at McCoy Hollow Campsite
Walked to Wet Prong Trail and connected back at the parking lot.
