Fisherman's Trail is an easy yellow-blazed 1 mile trail. It wanders through a mature hemlock forest between the East Picnic Area and the Main Picnic Area. A dense canopy of hemlock trees allows very little sunlight to reach the forest floor making for a relatively cool walk even on the warmest days. The dim light prohibits the growth of most plants, but ferns and small hemlocks manage to grow under the canopy. A vista overlooking the lake and dam is on the east end of the trail near the East Picnic

Directions: From Newport, PA, Take PA Route 34 south through the town of Newport. One mile from town turn right onto Little Buffalo State Park Road to the park. Travel past the lake and immediately turn left into the Main Day Use Area. Travel to the east end of the large turf parking area. The trail begins by the restrooms and picnic area.
