The Love Run portion of this hike is a stroll along an old logging road of gradually deteriorating quality as it meets up with the Mid State trail and climbs up through Hell Hollow. The Panther Run portion of this loop is far more exciting. Like most trails in this part of the state, it features one heck of a climb up to the top. There is a great view from the rocks at the top on Panther Run, but be very watchful through the rock formations as you begin the descent, I saw 5 Rattle Snakes in that area today-BIG ones! There is an active logging operation going on, right now, at the trail head. I had to do a little bushwhacking to avoid the heavy equipment at the end of the hike. I’ll do this one again.
