“A winding trail on the edge of the creek bank returning to the start through a stand of mature pines”
— John Ross
Landowner permission required to ride these trails.
Begin at the concrete covered culvert over Robinson Branch on the Sugar Camp Hollow
Trail but turn left instead of right and go over the culvert. Turn left just across the culvert between the branch and the pine trees and continue around to the right.
Before getting to a food plot, turn left toward Horse Creek and follow the trail along the edge of the creek. At several places, the trail has almost washed away. After leaving the creek, the trail goes along the pine trees on the right and comes out at the end of another food plot. Cross the food plot and continue through the large hardwood trees to where the trail is right on the edge of the creek again.
Take the left fork and continue on the old road to where the trail comes out to the edge of the creek again, across from a long bank of limestone rocks. Stop here and enjoy the view. Continue on the trail as it goes up the creek. On the other side of the creek is the Chalybeate Spring bluff. In winter the iron spring and waterfall can be seen. Where the trail turns back to the right, there's a side trail out to a gravel bar that provides a good swimming hole in summer.
Continue on the trail through tall grasses and weeds to where it crosses a low wet area that is sometimes flooded. After crossing it there's a fork where the right fork will go through the hardwoods back to the creek bank. The left fork, shown on the map, goes up a small hill to an opening on the edge of a pine plantation. The left fork here will be the Holt Cemetery Trail
. The right fork returns down hill to the food plot. Take the road in the middle of the food plot that goes straight back to the beginning at the concrete culvert.
