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. Those venturing along this path will encounter beautiful creek/woodland scenery, as many as 4 trestle bridges and a railroad tunnel that's short enough for natural light to illuminate the way through. The official trailhead actually begins in the middle of its length, on the parking lot side of the main park road with the trail extending to either side.
