Dead Man's Hollow is best known for a history stained by tragic events and horrific deaths. Many of the grim occurrences were often shadowed by one inexplicable circumstance or another. Of course, it is the hollow's very name that might be the greatest mystery of all. Even with years of speculation, it seems that no one is exactly sure how Dead Man's Hollow acquired its frightful name
The Wildlife Preserve at Dead Man’s Hollow encompasses 440 acres of highly significant wildlife habitat in Lincoln and Liberty Boroughs. Along the way you will see ruins of a ceramic tile factory. Access to Dead Man’s Hollow is from the Great Allegheny Passage, 1/2 mile downstream from the Boston Bridge. Unless you are up for a challenge. Then park at the the top and take the Witch Hazel Trail down. If you are lucky you will make it back up. It's a pretty steep hike up. But access to the ruins from the Allegheny Passage is a short trip and a nice place to explore.
