Trout Hollow Trail & Bighead River Conservation Area

The 14-km Trout Hollow Trail forms a loop along both banks of the Bighead River Conservation Area. The trail is marked with yellow blazes and follows the valley through open meadows, thick forests and some steep ridges that make for challenging hiking. Many high lookouts afford spectacular views of the river's braided channels and rapids. The Bighead River is well known for its sustenance of Rainbow trout, and good fishing holes can be found along its course.

The trail also encounters several historic ruins of a sawmill, electric power station, grist mill and water flume. John Muir, the founder of the international conservation movement, lived and worked at the Trout Hollow Sawmill around 1865, and wrote about the beauty of the area.
