If Stony Man takes you to see the sky, Dark Hollow will take you back to the lush groundwaters. Another relatively short and easy hike, Dark Hollow Falls Trail is 1.4 miles with 564 feet of gain. It brings you down into a verdant valley and features several small falls as it follows along a small mountain creek.
Not far from the Nike Missile site lies Long Pine Key, an area which encompasses nearly 19000 acres of slash pines, one of the largest and most threatened expanses of pine rockland remaining in the US. At one time, these pines dominated the entirety of South Florida, but have been eliminated by the growth demands and raw material harvesting.
