A lengthy hike or bike in southern Henry Coe. Bring a camera! The massive Henry Coe State Park has many adventures, but "beginners beware!" Easy hikes are available from both Hunting Hollow parking lots and the Park HQ on Dunne Road. This particular loop, from the south-western Hunting Hollow area, gives a memorable experience and a memorable leg workout! After a leg-burning trek up to Willson Camp and Willson Peak, you descend gently on a rarely-used trail and complete your loop in the forest along a seasonal stream.
