Trout Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Hikers are the latest folks to enjoy Holliday Creek in a line stretching back 8,000 years: Native Americans, gold miners, homesteaders, Confederate soldiers, scientists, foresters, and anglers—each found this beautiful stream suited their needs. Today, one of its greatest attributes—the scenery—enjoys protection within the largest of Virginia’s state forests, the Appomattox-Buckingham.
This prime Piedmont spot has mountain laurel bloom in spring, and the hills and a gorge near Holliday Lake dam defy anyone who equates Piedmont with pastoral. Throw in three unaided stream crossings and you’ve got an adventure that rivals any found in Virginia’s mountains."
