Wildcat Hollow Trial head is technically in Malta, OH. However, most associate it with being near Corning, OH since that is the nearest town. The trail is technical enough to be challenging with downed trees over the trail, many root and rock obstacles in the trial itself along with a few shallow water crossings of Eels Run creek. This trail is a part of the Wayne National Forest and does not contain the familiar intermittent placard markers common in state park trails. Wildcat Hollow Short Loop is well marked with reflective white diamond blazes nailed to the trees. It is easiest to follow in a clockwise direction, which is the direction I ran this trail. If you are looking for a trail technical enough to challenge you, yet entirely run-able, this is a must for your list!

Started at main trailhead and ran in a clockwise direction. The morning was unseasonably cold and only warmed up to about 38 degrees by the time I had finished. The weather was great, the trail was MUDDY! Not the best day to try for a PR on this trail, but it was fun nonetheless.
