Jack Hollow (Hurricane Creek)

Sunday afternoon, we took advantage of the mild weather to explore an area we've been wanting to check out for some time. We started hiking up Big Hurricane Creek from the bridge on Highway 9 into Jack Hollow. We were rewarded with a large rock formation along the north bluff to play on and a great hike along one of Izard County's most beautiful streams! This creek was important to the native-American population who used this land long before Europeans ever moved in and there is much evidence of their ancient presence all along the creek.
The bridge (shown in the photo) will soon be gone as another will replace it when the improvements to Highway 9 are completed.
