Long Description:
The Panther Hollow Bridle Path curls around the slope of Panther Hollow in a loop of nearly 2.5 miles. The Lower Path gentle falls toward the bottom of the Hollow and links the two Tufa Bridges -- one near each end of the Hollow. Between these two points, two small ravines have been carved by minor tributaries. These gaps are crossed by a pair of faux-arch bridges with stone facing. The construction includes a section of corrugated steel pipe well concealed below the stonework.

The Bridle Path bridges were constructed by the WPA in 1939. The Bridle Path is a well-travelled, well-maintained trail, while the Lake Trail lower in elevation and paralleling the Path has been neglected. The Lake Trail has a series of WPA bridges.
