Description

After working to get to the top of Bryson Hollow, you are rewarded with a excellent variety of features. Coming from Bryson Hollow you first see an early-1900 spring box built inside of the hill. Just around the corner you run into a wishing well from Appalachia's days past. You'll notice here you could bail out and go back down the mountain but I wouldn't - keep going!

Around the bend after a rocky drainage, you stumble upon little big rocks. Here you can go around or climb up and ride the rock! Around the next bend, you climb upwards towards a great view of rappel rock. If you wish, you can climb up (on foot!) the left side using the ropes and have a nice view of SNP.

On you go for more excellent trail with wide views and some fun turns taking you down to the top of Crawford Hollow. At the old road bed, you can go down either way, with the first left down having more flow or continue straight and down for some old school trail and a sweet wooden feature. Of course you could turn around and go backwards and get the Bryson Hollow downhill.
