This trail includes both the Jacobs Hollow and Round Island Run trails, both in Sproul State Forest, PA. The total mileage, one-way is 3 miles.

The first section of the hike is Jacobs Hollow, which is mostly flat and leads down to the Round Island Run trail.

The hike down on the Round Island Run trail is fairly steep and then disappears half way through the journey toward the river. Either the overgrowth made it hard to spot the trail, or the trail crossed the creek and we didn't realize.

Prepare to cross brooks multiple times before making it down to the river. Small waterfalls can be found along the Round Island Run trail toward the river as well.

Road Conditions: Jerry Ridge Rd and the roads leading to it are all dirt. These roads can often be extremely muddy during the rainy seasons and if you're not careful, your car could get stuck. There's also no cell service for dozens of miles. If you plan to drive in, it's often an 11-mile one-way drive to get to the trailhead, so come prepared with a vehicle that can handle these conditions.

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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
