This short and easy loop makes a delightful history hike to an old homestead area. An interpretive pamphlet, available for a small fee at the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center, will enhance the hike. The trail is not rough and is suitable for children. Blue blazes mark the trail. The park kiosk provides further information about the area and serves as the trailhead. The trail begins with a slight descent and soon accesses Dickey Ridge Trail to the left. Turn left and follow that blue- blazed trail for 0.2 mile, then turn right (following the blue blazes) onto the Fox Hollow Trail. You will pass piles of rocks reflecting the work once required to clear the forest and prepare it for cultivation.
