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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
