This trail name is wrong. The correct name is Dead Man's Cove trail. There is no cave, though there is a sinkhole as well as some long-buried kiln activity. Before the reservoir was created, the hill coming down what is now 146/Jarrettsville Pike was known as Dead Man's Hill. The cove that this hike goes along eventually took that hill's name after the current bridge was built and the road made more safe. This is one of my local hikes and I really enjoy both the trails and bushwhacking around the shore, where much beaver activity can sometimes be seen.
