Dog Hole Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This trail creates an 8.8-mile loop with the Grundy Forest Day Loop and the Fiery Gizzard Trail, offering great views along the way, including Werner Point Overlook. The Werner family operated the Werner Lumber company, which began in the late 1880s and closed in 1942; the family still owns much of the land in the region. The Dog Hole Mine, for which the trail is named, is a low opening in the wall of Gizzard Cove. Such coal mines were called dog hole mines because only a dog could stand upright in the short space. Camping is available at the Raven Point Campsite."
