essay bro

Hollinger Creek is the largest tributary-source of Porvineer Creek.  It drains the northeast slopes of Elk Mountain.   You will find this waterfall within the far eastern portion of the Pecos Wilderness Area.


Because of government budget cuts the Forest Service cannot maintain as many trails as it used to.  As you can see by the map below Hollinger Canyon Trail is no longer maintained.  We are loosing this trail…and several others.  The only way this trail is to be saved, is for you and I to use it.  Get off of your beep go hike it man…!!!  It is beautiful…!!!
