Beautiful hike to see magnanimous Atlantic white cedars available only in this trail. Hemlocks are enigmatic too. At the fag end of the trail, I lost my way and started walking north toward NYNJ border. Soon realized and walked south to reach parking. Nice boardwalk near swamp where snow is still melting. Mosses are beautiful and form a carpet on the water. Difficult to imagine it was a 12 feet deep lake 15,000 years ago.

Trail was mostly flat with peaceful views. I enjoyed the boardwalk. Just watch out for ticks. I removed about 4 of them.
