Salt Run in Pine Hollow @ CVNP CANCELLED due to weather

Because of the rain this hike is CANCELLED.


Please see Tailwag-N-Trailblazers new location and view conversation below


Now that the weather is changing, the trails are starting to turn muddy and slippery. Boots with good traction should be worn for this hike. This trail has steep hills with wooden steps that will take us up and down. HIKES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE NOW THAT THE WEATHER IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE UNPREDICTABLE.

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 that will allow us to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature after a busy work week.

The Salt Run Trail is a MODERATE to DIFFiCULT hike traveling over 3.25 miles of woodland, meadow, and rugged hills.

It's an enjoyable 2-hour walk through a mixed forest of pine, oak, hickory, beech and fabulous old hemlock. The trail offers a respite from the busier trails thus offering a better chance at viewing the area's white-tailed deer, wild turkey, coyotes and variety of bird life including pileated woodpeckers, warblers, and even the colorful scarlet tanager.

The elevation change of this trail is 160 feet dropping you into low-lying areas where fern, moss, and lichen cling to moist rock. The sunnier open meadows offers a chance at spying yellow wood-sorrel ((Oxalis stricta) and common cinquefoil (Potentilla simplex).

Dogs are welcome, but must remain on a leash.



Directions from Kendall Lake: Travel State Route 303 out of Hudson turning south (left) onto SR 8 / Akron-Cleveland Road.

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.

    For anyone interested there is a hike this afternoon at 2:00 with Northeast Hiking. It starts at Happy Days Lodge parking lot and does the Pine grove trial. It is also in Peninsula and many in the hike will be going to the Winking Lizzard after for food. Many people bring their dogs on the Northeast hikes. In fact I was at one hike that started at Happy Days were there was 36 hikers and about 32 dogs. This group will usually hike regardless of the weather. The trails on this hike are pretty rain friendly.

    The day finally came that the original organizer stepped down from the Tailwag-N-Trailblazer group. I do want to thank her for starting this wonderful group. Since she was the co-founder of this group, she is the one who had to pay for the funding to run this Meet Up. Having a Meet Up site does cost quite a bit of money to run. I enjoy this meet up very much, but I do not have the funds at this time to keep it going. So, to solve this problem I had to turn to FACEBOOK. All the up coming hikes are now posted on the Facebook website. Here is the new web address:
