At this point both groups can visit Dark Hollow Falls, after which they will diverge. Moderate hikers follow the Rose River Fire Road to Fishers Gap and the parking area. Long hikers ascend the Dark Hollow Falls Trail to Skyline Drive and follow it a short distance to Lewis Falls Road. Long hikers then descend the Lewis Falls Road to the intersection with the AT, and continue on Lewis Falls Road to Lewis Falls Trail. After a steep descent, long hikers visit the Lewis Falls. Returning to Lewis Falls trail, long hikers ascend it to the AT and follow the AT back to the bus at Fishers Gap.
