    Matt Larsen reviewed Berry Hollow to Old Rag Mountain Trail

    3 months ago

    This hike moderate and perfect for those that have kids and want to do Old Rags Head without worrying about the scramble on the main trail. My six year old had no issues or complaints...not sure I would take kids younger than that but, probably depends on the kid.

    The service road leading to the parking lot is single lane with no pull offs. It made for a bit of stress for the few mins it took to drive to the trailhead. Parking is highly limited...maybe up to 12 cars total so go early or later.

    Hike starts on a service road for almost a mile where it intersects with the traditional Old Rags Head trail. Incline is gradual, but consistent to the top with 1 or 2 scenic views along the way. Well maintained and well traveled, which was nice. View from the top was fantastic as was the light breeze. Hike says it’s a little over 5 miles but we clocked in a bit over 6. Bring mosquito spray and lots of water. Even though it’s covered the whole way up it still gets hot.
