Today was a nice sunny mid 60's day. We haven't had rain so no mud. I can see where there will be a lot of water flowing across this trail in the spring or during rainy weather. 2 miles of gravel lane then the rest is an unmarked trail through the woods.

The first half a mile was extremely muddy, it was ridiculous! It got a little bit better afterwards but the bugs never went away. Great views of the lake but not the best place to hike in the springtime.

What a beautiful hike! Got a little muddy and there is not a defined “turn around here” spot. Great views of the lake and not that busy on the trail itself.

Beautiful views, but turned around because of extremely buggy stretch both the trail. Covered head to toe in either flies or mosquitos. Would be 5 star without the bugs!

A pleasant walk, but wasn't as long as advertised. We walked south but the path ended before it should have. Still, we enjoyed the afternoon stroll.

Go to the South end boat launch and park on the woodland side. This forest trail will lead you to 3 beautiful waterfalls hidden by the side of hemlock lake.

Fishing

Hemlock Lake has been a staple for my entire family, my whole life. We kayak, fish, hike, and lots of other things here. It's where my parents brought me, I have brought my kids, and I hope the tradition continues on with my grandchildren. Wonderful place to go when you want to relax. It's magical!
