Trail shared by David Kutassy

One of the rockiest trails at Mint Springs Valley Park.

Features -none-

There is a day-use fee of a few dollars for each person that enters the park. Season passes are also available. To find out more and check current rates, click here.

Description

This trail provides some great climbing and is probably the quickest way to reach the Big Survey Trail.

Near the bottom is one of the park's longest rock gardens. You'll want to watch your ankles, but like the rest of the trails at Mint Springs, it's not terribly rocky. This trail is very wide for singletrack, so you have plenty of options to navigate the rocky terrain.

Look for a bouldering wall part way up the Hollow Trail if you're in to rock climbing. There a number of bouldering spots around the park, so check out the Mountain Project app for more details.
