Merry Woofmas Hike @ Salt Run Trail in Pine Hollow

Ho Ho Ho and Merry Woofmas!!!!! Let's take our fur children on a Christmas Eve day hike!!! We can work up an appitite for our evening dinner with family and fur children. This is a combined hike with the Tailwag-N-Trailblazers.

This is a wonderful hike. The trails are curvey and bendy and are made up of loose stone and dirt. Roots do stick out of the ground throughout the trail. There are two dirt hills with built in wood blocks as steps that will take us down into a ravine. There is also a hill with the same kind of block steps that will take us up. We will cross over some bridges and go up and down some hills. Hiking boots should be worn for good traction.
To get to Salt Run Trail, you will go about a mile down (1 mile) Quick Rd and make a left into the Pine Hollow parking lot. The parking lot is big. When pulling in, park on the left because you will be closer to the trail.
This will be a leisurely paced hike.
The Salt Run Trail is a MODERATE to DIFFiCULT hike traveling over 3.25 miles of woodland, meadow, and rugged hills.

Dogs are welcome, but must remain on a leash.

Directions:
Directions from Kendall Lake: Travel State Route 303 out of Hudson turning south (left) onto SR 8 / Akron-Cleveland Road. Take SR 8 less than a mile turning right (west) onto Truxell / Kendall Park Road. You'll see a large RV dealer located on the east side of SR 8. You'll head west! Travel 1.7 miles west to reach Kendall Lake. Begin on Lake Trail which is found behind the large shelter. Hike it about midway around the lake. As the trail turns from woodland to field on your left, you'll see a trail sign for Salt Run Trail.
