Hiking

Albemarle County does a good job of marking trails, but there are a few spots there trails intersect and 2-3 of 4 directions will be marked. We were the third car in and met very few people on the Fire and Big Survey trails The first bit of the Fire Trail is steep, and if you opt for the Big Survey trail, you’ll do some more uphill hiking. The way down is lovely.

Technical and muddy ascent immediately starting the trail. It’s a short one, but it definitely makes you work for it!

HikingGreat!

My 10-year-old son and I walked this beautiful trail this morning, and it was a wonderful experience. Parts of this trail are rocky and hilly, but it is relatively well-marked (a couple confusing signs), and provides beautiful views of the changing leaves (fall time).

Enjoyed this trail as well as added a longer loop to it for a 3 mile distance. This has a few creek crossings (some recent rains) and was enjoyable.

Fire trail up to hike was a bit moderate. The trail itself was very enjoyable. Take a left when you get to top of fire trail for an easier ascent.

Hiking

Nicely maintained trail, could be better marked in some places — we kept having to use the downloaded map in the app to stay on track. We ended up taking the Fire Trail all the way around instead of the Hollow Trail: from the information booth near the parking lot, head across the grass away from the lake and that’s where the Fire Trail starts. There’s no sign for the trail per se there but there is a green “keep pets on leashes” sign. Moderate incline from there for a while. This trail has no real vista views but there is a nice spot about 3/4ths of the way along where things open up briefly and you can see into a valley and to some rolling hills beyond.

HikingGreat!

Nice hike! Clear trails. Slightly unclear markings when trails fork or merge but overall well-maintained. Plenty of room to pass. Mostly rocky trail with stretches of gravel at the entrance and exit. Mostly uphill if you start on the Fire side and then mostly downhill as you get to the Hollow

Easy for young kids. Relaxing and water views with a good amount of shade on a hot day. Great for starting small or breaking in new boots ;)

I did fire trail to big survey and back to fire then down hollow trail but it is about the same distance. There were a couple of trees down on big survey that I had to climb over. Overall it is a beautiful, peaceful hike but I would consider it moderate, not easy. Lot of uphill at the beginning.

When you start up the fire trail, it is a bit uphill. If you go after rain, it can be a bit slippery with the combo of rocks and some mud. I saw a black bear on hollow trail a couple of weeks ago.

First to Review

We hiked out via the Hollow Trail and back on the Little Yellow Trail, connecting via a piece of the Fire Trail. Near where the Hollow Trail meets the Fire Trail, we took a detour outside the park that led to a peach orchard. Light trail, easy or moderate hiking.
