“Enjoy a beautiful trail up the hollow instead of up the hill.”— Jesse Dailey
This is a vigorous climb where you gain a little less than 200 feet. Expect to see views of old-growth forest with a steady climb even while taking some light switchbacks. Once you reach the top of the hill, you'll follow Fort Hill along the contour until intersecting with the Gorge Trail.
This trail also connects the entrance and exit of the Buckeye Trail from the park in case Buckeye Trail runners wanted to skip the mileage within Fort Hill.
