Hemlock Trail - Laurel Hill State Park
Ancient hemlock trees, 200-300 years old with diameters up to 3 ½ feet, line the creek along this gentle trail. The scenery here is spectacular with moss carpeting small rocks and boulders, the creek running wide and clear, and virgin hemlocks providing the final magic touch. The Hemlock Natural Area at the center of the Hemlock Trail loop contains outstanding ancient hemlocks. Along the upper loop of the trail are impressive black cherry, yellow birch, beech, maples, and oaks.
