Hike The Hollow Rock Trail at Rocky Face Mountain
North Carolina › Hollow Rock Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
This 2.4 mile loop in the Rocky Face Mountain Recreational Area offers a great opportunity for hiking and trail running. This trail is open year round and is dog friendly.
From the parking lot, head northwest to find the trailhead for Buzzard Roost Loop. Follow that and stay left to meet up with the Hollow Rock Trail. This is a moderate hike with great views of the park. Perfect for a quick escape with the family.
For a quick and tasty bite after your hike, hit up Scotty's Hometown Grill for some classic diner food.
