Welcome to the Wildcat Hollow Hiking Trail. This trail offers two options; a fifteen mile loop of scenic trail along ridge-tops and stream bottoms, and a short five mile loop for day hikes. Both trails will lead through tall pine forests, open meadows, quiet streams, rock outcroppings, and down old roads overlooking miles of beautiful landscape. You will also pass some of our land management activities. Wildflowers are at their peak in the spring, but we ask that you not pick them so that others may also enjoy them. The hiker who treads softly can often catch glimpses of the wildlife who call the forest home. Bring your binoculars, and enjoy your visit.
A trailhead, located approximately 3½ miles from Burr Oak Campground has parking for several vehicles and fire rings. Camping is available at Burr Oak Cove (just off U.S. 13) or the Burr Oak State Park. Camping is also permitted along the trail. If you stay close to the trail, you''ll be on National Forest land. Private land is interspersed with National Forest so be mindful to not trespass. No vegetation may be cut or damaged.
If you carry it in, you can carry it out. Go one step further and carry out trash that less thoughtful people have left behind. Leave only your footprints.
