It attracts users from all over the St. Louis area. From the trailhead, the trail is a downhill trek, all the way to the Al Foster Memorial Trail. The first 1/4 mile is noticeably steep, but the trail seems to level out as you proceed down the trail. There are benches at the side of the trail at intervals if you need a break. The Rock Hollow Trail is becoming an attractive park area for Memorial Benches. There are thirteen (13) wooden bridges along the trail and the scenery changes dynamically with the seasons.
