“A Hollow Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Hiking through Rodman's Hollow, a nature preserve, is serene. Aim for Black Rock, where you can descend the low bluffs for a magnificent view.

“Hike is worth the views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

WEll, we happened upon this one by accident. Great trails, a little under-trodden at times, just do a tick check back at your car. Followed a group of people on horses and the main trail is okay for biking to where most points converge at the cliffs. Breathtaking views, worth stopping and taking in before heading back to the main road. Feels like you are somewhere exotic at times on the trails, so pick a path and make your own adventure!

“Like Ireland's Landscape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This is the islands "Grand Canyon" but on a much much smaller scale. You would need the day to walk down the path to the sea and enjoy a picnic and rest at the sea and walk back. We loved this area of the island after visiting the Southeast Lighthouse.

“Bring water and a snack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

This walk takes you down into a hollow. I thought we would never get out. The walk is very long and tiring. Interesting but not too much fun
