Barn Hollow Conservation Area is located in Texas County, approximately three miles north of Mountain View. Barn Hollow is the local name for a clear Ozark stream that drains directly into the Jacks Fork River. The 252-acre area is deeply dissected by the 1.2-mile canyon-like Barn Hollow.
Visitors may view the narrow, steep-walled hollow from the end of a one-half mile foot trail. The trail originates at the area parking lot, near the south boundary.
During your visit to the area, you may notice various wildlife habitat improvement projects in the old fields and young pine plantings.
