Hiking Distance: .8 miles each way (.4 if you park at the upper parking lot)
*UPDATE: as of July 18th, 2015 the road to the upper parking lot is (temporarily?) closed.
Snake Hole is a great place to cool off during the heat of the summer.
Directions from Charlottesville:
To get to Sugar Hollow, take Barracks Road away from town. Barracks road turns into Garth Road. Continue several miles. At White Hall, you will come to a very sharp turn in the road . Piedmont Store will be directly in front of you. Garth Road takes a sharp right. You want to stay straight, keeping Piedmont store on your right as you pass it.
This is 614. Continue a few more miles. Eventually you will climb a steep hill and see the dam and then Charlottesville Reservoir on your left. At the top of the hill, the road turns to gravel. A little beyond this, you will come to a parking area on your left. I suggest parking here, and continuing up to the trailhead on foot.
The road beyond the first parking area is full of huge potholes. I wouldn’t attempt it in my little car.
