Pate Hollow Trail

Pate Hollow Trail

This 7.7 mile hike-only trail is a nice hike through mixed hardwoods with views of Lake Monroe. An old road serves as an inner connector for those desiring a shorter hike. The trailhead parking lot and the first few feet of the trail is located at the Paynetown State Recreation Area managed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resource (DNR).

Pate Hollow Trail is a joint effort between the Hoosier National Forest and the Indiana DNR. The parking lot trailhead is administered by the DNR and offers access not only to the Hoosier National Forest Pate Hollow Trail, but also to the DNR White Tail Trail. The White Tail Trail intersects just a few feet into the trail and takes off to your left. Have fun on both trails but please be aware that different rules apply for each agency.
