Dark Hollow Overlook at Michaux State Forest is a quick hit for great views of Pennsylvania's Appalachian mountains and Michaux.

This hike can be as long or as short as you want. You can drive directly up to the overlook, but it can be easy to miss while driving. This GPS track leads from the intersection down the street where Ridge rd, Stillhouse Hollow Rd, and the AT meet. You can park at the pull-off at the intersection and hike down the road to the overlook, which is 0.8 miles out-and-back.

Worth stopping for a quick view of this nice roadside vista, but not really a destination hike. Stopped on my way to hike at Long Pine Reservoir & Rocky Knob which was exxcellent!

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
