This is a really pretty, easily accessible trail with some nice wildlife and not a lot of people. Occasionally there will be a boat on the water but it's very peaceful.

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.

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!
