The name of the trail is decieving... You're not hiking on only Deep Hollow and Shreffler, but you cut across on Rock's Ridge Trail to Shreffler Rd from Deep Hollow. I then took Iron Mine Trail off of Shreffler to return to the parking lot. That loop was just short of 7 miles.

Turned this into a 10 mile hike by looping it with a few other trails. Overall great hike, only saw 1 other person and he was out with his horse and dog.

This hike is more remote, we ran into a 5 foot timber rattler. The snake gave us no problems but like all PA hike they are out there.

Took the dog and she had a blast but there were a lot of ticks so check yourself and pets when done.

Was looking for a single track. Had no idea this was just a road. Disappointed.

This is a nice trail, but I wouldn't rate it as easy. If you are new to hiking or someone who is out of shape trying to get healthier, then this trail may not be the one for you. The trail itself is pretty easy to follow, but we did end up getting "lost" since it's not clearly marked when you need to take another trail in order to complete the loop. We hiked about 4 miles in before deciding to turn around and head back to the car since we weren't sure what trail we needed to take. Over all, though, it was a good day!

Looking at the other reviews, I guess we just picked a crummy direction to walk. We hiked off to the left (west) where the road ends (could have gone straight toward the power lines or off to the right. Nothing much to see in the direction we walked. Found some coyote and racoon prints, not much else.

Awesome area, I love it and have hiked all the peaks and rock outcroppings, Pinnacle, Pullpit, Owls head, Hemlock heights, South rock (2 rattlers) and rattlesnake mtn. Lots of beautiful views.

You can hike the ridge or walk the dirt road all the way to Hawk Mountain's Owl's Head look out. Just awesome! First time there my dog found a Timber Rattle Snake den under the boulder I was sitting on. Now, how many people can say they found something like that? I was thrilled. There is so much wildlife to see, there are also many lookouts along the way.
