Still house and Elk Ridge trail is a hike to the falls and then returning back to the trailhead via the Elk Ridge trail the leaves Still House and loops over a forested ridge before returning to the Still house trail. The natural area is named for its most significant feature, Stillhouse Hollow Falls, which can be seen by walking approximately 2/3 of a mile along the Stillhouse Hollow Falls trail. The trail crosses an unnamed tributary that forms small scenic cascades before plunging approximately 75 feet. Stillhouse Hollow Falls is a 90-acre state natural area located approximately 21 miles southwest of Columbia and three miles northeast of Summertown off Hwy US 43. The natural area is on the Western Highland Rim in the Duck River watershed. The geology of this region creates scenic natural features such as seeps, flat shale-bottom streams, and waterfalls, both small and large, which help shape the regions dissected topography.

Adding the Elk Ridge trail to Still house is a pleasant addition to the trail. Whole area is worth hiking.
