HIKING AND ATV
Ranson Hollows has an extensive network of trails that should satisfy the avid hiker or meandering woods walker. Our trails range from a 1% grade to elevation changes of 500 feet or so.
We welcome people who enjoy a nice, quite and responsible ATV ride. You may bring your own and putter around at your own risk provided you are a mature and safe operator over 18 years of age and not prone to uttering those famous words that signals stupidity has taken control- “Hey, ya’ll watch this!” while riding on our trails.
Jackson County has a vast network of single lane paved, gravel and unmaintained public roads legal for ATV riders. It’s the perfect way to see some beautiful farm country. The very popular “Poverty Ridge Trail” runs through the northern end of Ranson Hollows and from there you can go anywhere in the world!
Like all woodsy, pastured and wet lands type places we get a lot of different mushrooms that pop up from year to year. They can be really interesting to find, identify and photograph. Only Experienced Shroomers should try to eat them. Inexperienced mushroom eaters never seem to book return trips so we don’t recommend being the first to try one. Wonder why?
