Description

There is parking at the gate which is also the intersection of Ridge Road and Means Hollow Road and the Appalachian Trail.

Go around the yellow gate and ride over 200 yards of coarse gravel to get to the turnoff for the Canada Hollow Reroute (Michelle's Trail). Continue past this turnoff and the end of the rough gravel on the doubletrack.

The road branches several times to different logging landings left over from clear cuts of various year. They all dead end except for various unmarked trails and the Canada Hollow Gumrun Loop. Some of these unmarked trails are over a century old, but most are impassible on wheels.

The Canada Hollow Reroute (Michelle's Trail) turnoff is found just after a sweeping switchback to the right and then left, and at the near bottom of a steep rocky section. The turnoff goes up a steep bank but is unmarked.

All other routes will be out-and-back, down and back up. The excellent views, abundant wildlife, and visualization of the forest in various stages of regeneration still make it a worthwhile exploration.
