Pretty tough trail - definitely moderate, lots of steep hills. It is a loop, but making the loop requires walking along the road for about 1/2 mile.

This trail is clearly marked and easy to find if you are already walking along Davis creek trail toward the South end.
However, if you are coming just for this trail, I think the best place to park is at the other end of the trail. There is a small gravel lot on the right before the turn off to Dunlop Hollow. Follow the trail up a steep hill, and you will intersect a gravel road. This intersection can be a bit confusing, but follow the arrows on the wooden signs and you will find the other half of the trail a short way down the gravel road. When While Hollow trail ends, it will intersect Davis Creek Trail. Turn left, follow Davis Creek trail to the end, and then go left along the road about half a mile to your car.
In summer, there is a bit of overgrowth on some parts of this trail. Wear long pants or wait until cooler weather if this is something that bothers you.

Tough trail for beginners, especially with kids in tow! Would do it again though!

Great trail but definitely more than moderate for casual hikers. It's all straight up the first half and down the rest. Definitely would recommend trekking poles.
