Hemlock Trail

Water Source

The Hemlock Trail in Laurel Hill State Park, PA, is an easy 1.8 mile out-and-back hike that leads you through an old growth Hemlock grove.

The trail runs from the parking lot on Laurel Hill Park rd next to Laurel Hill Creek over to Buck Run rd in Laurel Hill State Park.

You can fish along the creek as well and it's stocked with trout, but you need to use artificial lures per regulations and of course, need a state license.

The GPS data provided is missing the southern/western trail split section - you can technically take 2 routes to/from the trailheads. Follow the yellow blazes to stay on route.

Old Growth Grove: The old growth forest can be found within the 'loop' portion of this trail data, which is about 0.5 miles from the start of the hike. You'll find signs that clearly distinct that section of the forest as the old growth area.

Biking is not allowed through this trail.
