Reader Hollow, FR 2155, is a seasonal, out-and-back trail north of Crane Lake in the Mark Twain National Forest. At the beginning, a gentle hill climb has been rutted out. Because of this, if the trail is wet, it will be challenging to get to the top. There are several areas with puddles that are not very deep. Before reaching the creek, a downhill portion is rutted out worse than the beginning. 4WD will make quick work of it if you take the proper line. Once at the creek and the trail starts to turn south, a gate prevents further exploration. Where the trail ends, the Marble Creek section of the Ozark Trail follows the stream south. Expect pin striping. Keep your eyes open for crystals and fossils in the creek beds!

Halfway through the trail, there is a campsite with a fire ring. Additional open areas to camp at are scattered along the trail.
