Relaxing walk with lots of new benches and scurrying shrews. Leaves have begun to turn auburn.

A nice short level Trail even on a misting rainy day. Especially if you love trees. Don't be sad by the old fallen hemlocks. You'll see there's new growth growing up in and around them! You can connect to the White Oak Canyon Trail to make it longer.

Great hike. Heads up: 1.5 miles in, traveling counter clockwise on this trail, there's a nest of angry yellow jackets. Bit our party and other folks we talked to on the trail.

The Limberlost Trail is wheel chair accessible, with lots of benches for sitting and enjoying the outdoors. We were amazed at the number of chipmunks. Park in the Limberlost lot MP 43. The nearest bathroom is at the Skyland Dining Room.
