Hemlock Trail penetrates a dark cedar and hemlock forest as it crosses the park's bluff line twice. Atop the bluffs are impressive stands of maple, birch, and beech. This wooded trail offers opportunities for early summer wildflower identification. The endangered, fragrant dwarf lake iris grows amid wooded hillsides and ravines. At woods edge look for the conspicuous, red-tipped bracts of the 24" Indian paintbrush. Often in humus mats tucked in hemlock stands is a leafless stalk bearing one delicate yellow flower known as the ladyslipper.
Directions: From Fish Creek, WI, Travel north on Hwy. 42 for three miles to reach the park entrance. Acquire park map at entrance or nature center for trailhead access point.
