This trail route begins at Dead Woman Hollow off Rocky Ridge Rd meeting the AT at the top of the ridge. Follow the AT north, passing the official halfway point on the AT. The route concludes at Michaux Rd, a quarter mile from the ruins of Camp Michaux WW II POW camp.

The initial run is pretty mediocre- essentially an ATV track. Once you hit the Appalachian trail it becomes a lot more interesting and challenging. There actually is a small parking area where Dead Woman's Hollow trail meets up with the AT, next time I'm starting there.

My husband and I stumbled upon this trail when it branched off of another one (Blueberry Trail, I believe). We started on a 4-5 mile hike which turned into almost 15miles! Well worth it. Saw tons of wildlife, came across a flock of baby turkeys and their not so happy momma, and it was the perfect temp outside! Would definitely go back.
