Dark Hollow connects the trailhead on Seven Points Rd with the south section of Raystown trails. Although short, the trail is a big climb/descent on either side of a large drainage and features lush vegetation.
The upper reaches of Dark Hollow start out mellow and rolling, contouring along a shallow hillside just below the road. At the intersection with the Visitor's Center trail, stay right. Be prepared for a BIG bermed turn and a screaming descent into the creek.
The trail crosses a bridge and then steadily climbs and contours around to an intersection with Shade and Barrel Bay.
