Corral Hollow is a great trail for the novice driver or family, with great views along the way. The trail winds into the mountains just outside of Bear Valley. The trail will quickly reach it's peak along a ridge that is used for a ski run in the winter.

When you reach the ridge you will notice the ski run signs on the utility poles and the forest cleared in sections for the ski runs. Looking down the run you will even see a chair lift or two.

The trail is scenic and a great place for a "Sunday" drive. Bring lunch and enjoy a picnic along the ridge.
