Swallow Hollow never disappoints. The swampy area is all but totally dried up, but it is still beautiful. The walk today seemed like a lot longer than a mile and 3/10ths, but I am sure that is accurate. I am grateful for the nice benches...More

This was a nice trail to walk. Anyone would enjoy this one. There is a nice boardwalk through a lot of it so a wheelchair could probably go on it also

We always go here for a nice little walk with the family. It is about 1.2 miles around. There is a nice path, some of it has wooden bridges and other parts are dirt. Great place to get away from it all and enjoy nature!
