Blue Knob State Park offers year-round wilderness adventures on 6,128 acres of woodland. The park is in the northwestern tip of Bedford County, west of I-99. Altoona, Johnstown and Bedford are within 25 miles of this scenic park. The elevation of the park can cause air temperatures to be several degrees cooler than the surrounding cities. The annual snowfall averages about 12 feet. One of the unique features of the park is the solitude it provides the visitor. There are many opportunities to enjoy the quiet and refreshing serenity of the mountains and streams.

This is a beautiful trail through which passes through an old homestead, follows Pavia Run to a CCC Group Camping area, traverses the ridge line and then ends back at the Mowery Picnic Area parking lot. Great for kids. After your hike, take a dip at the Blue Knob State Park pool across the road which has free admission.

I went looking for this deep hollow trail today but couldn't find this exact one. BKSP had a lot of trails around the area and a Deep Hollow Run, the river was shown on the map. I even stopped in the park office and they didn't know of the trail. I took the Rock N Ridge trail instead that runs along deep hollow run. nice 3.5 mile hike with some heavy elevation changes. I'm going to keep trying to locate this exact trail I even used gps to take me to the trailhead​ but still no luck. Not going to give up on this one but there is a lot of trails around the area I plan to hike over the next few weeks.
