Rock Hollow Trail is a 7.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Ballwin,MO. It consists of one major valley and features a waterfall. It is a trail that is good for all skill levels. We are beginning our hike at the Al Foster Trailhead in Wildwood, MO, where there is enough parking for our group. Using the Al Foster Trailhead as a connector, we will hike 2.5 miles out and back. The Rock Hollow Trail is beautiful and will be displaying a rich blanket of fall colors for our SCA 2018 pack hike. Learn more about Missouri State Parks at mostateparks.com. We have laid out a route using parts of the two trails (Al Foster Trail and Rock Hollow Trail) that is 5 miles in length, so the dogs carrying packs with the correct **weight of contents will earn 50 pack hike points. The hike will be an easy /intermediate hike as there are some moderate hills. After Trail End pictures, we will meet for lunch at Bring your own lunch and drink if you wish.
