Great trail for a hike/run. I did the McKay Hollow Trail to the Southern Plateau Trail to make a loop out of it. The start of the trail (coming in by small pavilion and water fall) is quite steep, lots of rocks, boulders, and roots.

The long, flat section in the hollow makes for a great section to run. Ascending up out of the hollow to the South Plateau Trail is a fairly easy gradual ascent.

Once you make it up to the South Plateau Trail, you’re home free with a flat, easy trail to finish up with a run. Great workout that took me approximately two hours to complete.

Saw two bucks, both had nice racks, and three does. They didn’t give much of an opportunity for pictures. I did get a great shot of a doe eating grass on the side of the road while driving back home, though! Ha! But of course!
