Hemlock trail was tough with a 24lb pack and all those rocks, but we really enjoyed the different scenery.

The bridge is broken-sitting in the creek and missy so hard to cross. There were probably about 15 trees down on trail that you have to go over or under and sections where there were multiple trees down and hard to traverse.

I park at the bottom and hiked up the Rim trail to the top. Which will be the road again. Don’t worry it’s peaceful. Mt road. Dirt. Then followed the road just for a little and you will hit the Tuscarora Trail on your right. It will look like a dirt road. Follow that out for a little and then the trail cuts off to the left. Here you can follow the road for shorter hike. I went out the T. Trail to the Bear Pond Trail. There will be a sign. Followed that back down to. Hemlock Trail. You will cross over that dirt road at some point on the bear pond trail that you can tske as a short cut you which you can take a short cut. Followed the Hemlock trail back to the road. Then. Took the road back. But you can take the the Rim trail back down if you want there is little trail cut from the hemlock to the Rim trail. Enjoy
