Bear Hollow Trail

Bear Hollow Trail is about a half mile long, and connects between Forbes Trail Drive in Heather Highlands and Gun Club Rd. near Royal Highlands Ballfield.  Park at the ballfield and locate the trail head a short distance South of the parking lot.  This trail is very nice because it runs through a steep sided, heavily wooded valley, and has a small stream at the bottom.  The trail is graded, but may have some wet areas, and there no longer is bridge over the stream near the Forbes Rd. end.  Starting at the Forbes Rd, end requires parking on the street.  There is a sign at the trail entrance.
