Hiking Trail 4 (Rally Campground)
Trail 4 starts out across from the Rally Campground parking lot and travels three quarters of a mile down the knobstone escarpment, dropping some 250 feet to Ogle Lake.
While Trail 4 itself is a no-frills affair, it’s a perfect launching pad for a great day of hiking. Finish up at Trail 5, Ogle Hollow Nature Preserve, and loop back to the Rally Campground parking lot.
