Please do not ride when wet. You may wish to avoid the park during hunting season. Refer to ODNR hunting calendars for gun season dates (hunting is allowed in Strouds Run State Park).
Access this end of Hollow Point Trail directly across State Park Road from Thunderbunny Trail
. Here begins a significant amount of climbing to the intersection with Scatter Ridge Trail
(a left-hand turn uphill), before Hollow Point continues straight and continues hugging the contours of the ridge.
After passing the Scatter Ridge Trail
intersection on your left (there are actually two signed intersections, very close together, where you can choose to either go left and up Scatter Ridge Trail
or to stay straight on Hollow Point Trail), Hollow Point begins a couple of miles of swoopy, fun singletrack featuring tight creek crossings and lush ferns in the summer time. There is one steep downhill with some exposed roots that can keep you on your toes, and there are numerous dips with hard right-hand turns out of the dip.
The last half-mile of trail features some tricky switchbacks and even a few rocks (a rarity in Southeast Ohio). The trail ends by intersecting State Park Road, so be prepared to slow down and watch for traffic before exiting the trail.
