Tar Hollow

Okay gents, I know a lot of you have been looking around for information on the wheeling areas in Tar Hollow. I have been looking around myself and have been down there twice now exploring.
Here is a link to the map I have been working on... The "trail paths" are guestimations as I dont have a GPS to track where I drove and cell service down there is basically zero.

Here is a video of the Albright Road Trail that I took in October.

I have footage from last weekend where I explored 13B/Riddle Rd that I will put together and upload for yall.

If you want to be able to edit the map, just message me on here or google and I will allow you to add to it.

Here is footage of one of the trails branching off of 13B/Riddle Road that leads to Macedonia Road/47. Footage is from the beginning of December.

Cool, thanks for sharing!

Just thought I'd post a picture of the map you made. Video is the yellow trail with red arrows for anyone else following along. I assume the land ownership (other side of the barricade) is for private hunting purposes? It doesn't seem like anyone is farming out there or anything.

I believe the land on the other side belongs to some sort of gun club. When you reach the gravel road seen at the end of the video there is a gate to your right that leads on up a ways with a sign:

haha, nice. I was wondering what the sign said. Doesn't really look all that official though. Still, I'll keep out as long as I don't have a reason to go down there.

There are many trails to explore in Vinton County. Here is a playlist of my personal videos and others I have come across. Best advice I can offer is to go with people that know the trails, don't stray from the unmaintained township roads (trails) unless you have permission from the property owners and order a county map from the county engineer's office.

The land beyond the orange gate is privately owned. Orange gates often block access road for utilities, most likely natural gas lines. In satellite images, you can clearly see the access road. The umaintained portion of Albright is not visible on satellite images.

If you are looking for trail guides, hook up with Southern Ohio Jeepers Association. This is where they wheel all the time. They have some open rides and some club rides. You can go on two club rides before deciding if you want to join. Good group of people.

Heading that way next weekend. Is the trail between Lady Run Road and Macedonia Road as easy as it looks from Google Maps?
