The 0.8-mile White Cedar Swamp Trail explorers the lower region of Harrington Beach State Park. Hikers will see patches of ancient white cedar amid birches, aspens, and maples. The life cycle of the shallow-rooted white cedar is not only visible but also described on interpretive signs dotting the trail. Spring hikers are given the additional bonus of wildflower displays. Sprinkled on the forest floor is trillium, mayapples, anemones, hepatica, and several varieties of fern including the scrumptious fiddleheads. Man is not the only woodland inhabitant. White-tailed deer, gray and red fox, mink, raccoon, and opossum share the lakeshore environment.
Directions: From Port Washington, WI, Travel approximately 10 miles north along I-43. Take Hwy. D east for 1 mile to the park entrance. The trail begins from the North Beach parking area.
Elevation: 700 feet
