Steps from Rocky Hollow, E7201
" Steps from Rocky Hollow"<br />
Turkey Run State Park <br />

Hiking in Turkey Run State is one of my favorite escapes.  I particularly enjoy the  place where the large expanse of Rocky Hollow narrows considerably into a small slot in the sandstone walls.  Here one can observe the work of young men employed by a New Deal program called the Civilian Conservation Corps, or CCC.  Each time I visit,  I try to imagine the hard work that these desperate, depression-era men carried out on the park's numerous trails.   Decades later, we are the benefactors of their labors.
