Description

The Hanby Hollow Trail (marked with yellow blazes) cuts through the center of the Narrows Ridge Main Loop. On its eastern end, the trail starts near the parking area and access area for Turkey Creek Falls. The sound of the waterfalls will be audible from the start of the trail.

The trail then passes a junction with the Narrows Ridge Main Loop before climbing steadily for half a mile. Hikers will then have a gradual descent for the next half mile, crossing the Narrows Ridge Main Loop on the western side before ending at the Thompson Trace trail and the western parking lot.
