Bear Hollow Mountain WMA

Bear Hollow Mountain WMA

This is a mountainous WMA that includes lots of hardwood trees, many foodplots, and regenerating clear cuts. There is a nearby private campground. This WMA is for hunters, hikers, and even horseback riders. A walking and horse trail runs through the area with great scenic views. In addition, there is great deer and turkey hunting here if you can handle the mountainous terrain. 

Many gravel roads through Bear Hollow Moutnain WMA are gated at various times of the year, but parking is available for hiking at these locations and at trailheads for hiking trails. Hiking trails with parking lots are available at two locations near the Alabama state line. The northern access has a nice overview of the valley and a 1 mile hiking trail loop. Hikers can head south and connect with the trail that leads to the Walls of Jericho in Alabama. Trailhead access for the Walls of Jericho State Natural Area, which is an excellent trail worth hiking, is accessible from just across the state line.
