Downed Timber in a notch that the trail went through. The trees had been killed by a forest fire and later fell. It made getting through the notch a tad difficult.

Seven Hollows Trail (loop trail: 4.5 miles, 4 hours; to Natural Bridge: 1.3 miles; to Grotto: 2.25 miles) actually only goes through the four most interesting hollows. Rated as moderate to hard, this trail passes through open areas, immense rock formations, rock fields with near dessert-like conditions and the lush moss and fern understory of a hardwood forest. The trail passes through areas that are successfully recovering from an August 2000 wildfire. The trailhead begins 1 mile west of Mather Lodge on highway 154.
