Hiking along this lush, shaded trail in  Wildcat Mountain State Park trail is a great way to replenish. 

Take the unnamed road that turns off of Highway 33 (see map). At the end of this road is a parking lot and the trailhead. The trail will take you along the Kickapoo River in a 2.7 mile loop through hemlock forest. You can see exposed rock formations on this trail.

Hike the Hemlock Trail Reviews

This area is gorgeous. The Wildcat State Park has great campsites and awesome trails through the bluff. Book a canoe/float/kayak trip with Drifty’s to get the full experience!

Nice little trail with some decent incline towards the middle. Wish it was a little longer but still nice.
