Tar Hollow gets its name from the shortleaf and pitch pines growing on its ridges. Early settlers took the knots and heartwood from those trees for use in everything from animal liniments to medicinal balms and wagon lubricant. Today, thanks to those hills this park is beautiful in fall when the leaves change color. Looking up at the surrounding hillside from the surface of the park’s 15-acre pond is one great way to enjoy the view. Another is by hiking the park’s numerous trails. The yellow-blazed Ross Hollow Hiking Trail starts near the Ross Hollow portion of the campground, so it’s convenient, and winds for 3.5 miles. The 2.5-mile Pine Run Mountain Bike Trail can be biked or hiked and likewise starts near the campground’s general store.
