Hemlock Bluffs is unique in that it has vegetation that only grows in the mountains. It is unforgettable. The parks have made a wonderful trail system throughout. I would highly recommend a visit.

Great trails, well maintained. Perfect for the family (we have young kids) but don't forget your bug spray!
