The Catfish Pond Trail at Dead Man's Hollow Conservation Area is a tiny trail, mostly just about 200 feet out-and-back, that leads down to Catfish Pond and a fishing area.

The trailhead can be found right at the parking lot, next to the bench - near the main trailhead for the Cool Spirit Trail. Head downhill to Catfish Pond for some good fishing.

Parking: Parking can be tricky due to google maps misinterpreting the parking location, so the parking marker is located at the entrance to the Dead Man's Hollow parking lot. The entrance to the parking lot can be found at the junction of Scene Ridge Rd and River Ridge Rd.

Hunting: Hunting is allowed at Dead Man's Hollow.

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!️
