Tar Hollow anyone?

We had a group that went to Tar Hollow in the Hocking Hills area last year.
Is anyone up for a wheeling trip and know the area very well?
I have an idea but do not want to get lost.
John.

Curtisg sent me this message. I think he has a few people going.



Great! Well, as luck would have it, we're planning to do a run next Saturday, June 29th. We're going to meet at the entrance to Clear Creek Metro Park on Route 33 south of Lancastwer around 10:00. We'll drive through the park and then take backroads that lead towards Laurelville. We'll hit three Geocaches along the way to the Tar Hollow area. We'll do a lunch on the trail at some point.

The afternoon will be running around on the unmaintained/unimproved roads east of Tar Hollow. People can peel off and head home as needed. It won't be the type of run that once you start down the trail that you have to stay to course to the very end. If you're available, let me know and I can get more specific.

If you're not familiar with Geocaching, here is a primer...

The geocaching and wheeling trip planned for tomorrow will be rescheduled for another date when the weather is more agreeable. We're still planning to run around and explore the area around Tar Hollow. At the moment, it looks like we have three rigs. We're meeting South of Laurelville around 11:00 and need to head back North to Columbus by 16:00. We have someone in our group that needs to be back up here by 18:00. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Turned out to be a good day to run around near Tar Hollow. The short bursts of rain added to the fun. Don't be fooled by the water, these are unmaintained township roads. They are not creek beds. People live back in some of these areas. I couldn't imagine driving these roads on a regular basis. My favorite sighting of the day was the street sweeping sign. Just before and just after this sign there were stretches of road under several inches of running water.

Thank to JKJeepBoy and his crew for joining us on the ride. We had a great time. Got to do it again sometime very soon.

Here is the first of several mud holes.


This is one of the unmaintained roads during a heavy rain. Due to logging on both sides of the road, there is a lot of runoff.


Here is the crew performing trail fixes after a run through a long mudhole.




This is the road just a few hundred yards "downstream" from the street sweeping sign.


Someone has a twisted sense of humor. I like it!


This is a little way up the hollow from the street sweeping sign.


More off camber road and water.


Ever feel like you're going to slide off the trail? Thankfully, it is just a small creek rather than a deep ravine.
