Following the route of an abandoned railroad grade, Clear Creek Hollow Trail parallels Clear Creek stream throughout its length. This old railway route, formerly a spur off the L&N (Louisville & Nashville) once serviced coal-mining operations in the area many years ago. In the mid 1980's the rails were taken up and the route was soon adapted for foot travel and other recreational uses. Today, it is regarded as an ideal fitness trail and is utilized by hikers, walkers, runners, mountain bikers and fisherman. The trail is flat and level and boasts a number of interesting features. Those venturing along this path will encounter beautiful creek/woodland scenery, as many as four trestle bridges. The official trailhead begins in the middle of its length, on the parking lot side of the main park road with the trail extending to either side. When traveling on the parking lot side, users will eventually encounter a sign that marks the end of the Park's boundary. On the opposite section, the trail passes through the campus of the Clear Creek Baptist Bible College and ends at a pair of log blockhouse towers that mark the entrance to the Kentucky Ridge State Forest. It is recommended that you keep small children close at hand when approaching and crossing the trestle bridges. This trail is not completely depicted on the map. Elevation change of six feet.
