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. Begin the hike on the east side of Skyline Drive, across from the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center. The kiosk provides further information about the area and serves as the trailhead. The clockwise trail begins with a slight descent and accesses Dickey Ridge Trail to the left at a cement post at about 0.15 mile. Turn left and follow the blue-blazed trail for 0.2 mile. At the cement post at 0.3 mile, turn right at the fork onto Fox Hollow Trail, also blue-blazed, past piles of rocks reflecting the work once required to clear the forest and prepare it for cultivation.
