Hiking Sleepy Hollow Trail

The Sleepy Hollow trailhead shares Road 28 with the Mount Zion trailhead, which is two miles north of Bon Jon Pass.

The trail starts downhill immediately on an old road, turning gradually into new trail. Eventually, hikers pops out onto a more secluded route that winds down to Gold Creek.

From the Gold Creek crossing the trail continues uphill in a westerly direction on an old road. After a mile it rounds the nose of the ridge and turns south, descending a bit. There are good views into the Upper Dungeness drainage from here. After this viewpoint, maintenance has apparently ceased. The alder closes in and there are blackberry bushes to contend with as well.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

Drive Highway 101 north from Quilcene for one and a half miles onto Lords Lake Loop Road. Continue 3.5 miles and turn left at a junction near Lords Lake itself.

Turn right onto Forest Road 28 (graveled) and proceed nearly 5 miles to an unmarked junction at Bon Jon Pass. Look for a junction with FR 27 and pass it before arriving at Bon Jon.

In Bon Jon Pass, hang a right on unmarked FR 2810 and in two miles, arrive at the Mount Zion/Sleepy Hollow trailhead. The trail departs across the road from the parking area.
