Sheepskin Hollow Nature Preserve encompases an outstanding eastern hemlock ravine known as Sheepskin Hollow and mixed mesophytic woods adjacent to the North Fork of Little Beaver Creek State and National Scenic River.

Several impressive outcroppings of Pennsylvanian sandstone and shale occur in Sheepskin Hollow forming at least two scenic waterfalls.
