Trail Overview

This is one of the easier trails to run in what has become known as the Tar Hollow Trails of Vinton & Hocking County. This trail is not maintained and is rutted with a few mud holes. It is a good connector to take if you wish to minimize the amount of main road/pavement when running other trails in the area. This is one of a few trails in the area that a stock 4WD can take if careful.

Difficulty

A minimum of 33-inch tires, a 2-inch lift, and a winch is recommended, but a stock 4WD can run this trail with careful wheel placement. It is a mainly rutted dirt road with a few mud holes. Depending on the season, some mud holes can be 12+ inches deep.
