The Hemlock Trail loops through the southeastern portion of the park starting at Sturgeon Bay shoreline. From a service road it passes through a picnic area, above the campground, and into the interior of the park. A segment of the trail retraces the 8,500-year-old shoreline once inhabited by the Algonquin Indians. Much of the trail explores a beech, red oak, red maple, red pine, and Eastern hemlock forest. Expect rugged terrain as the trail passes over limestone bluffs. Picnic tables, drinking water, and restrooms are available at the trailhead.
Directions: From Sturgeon Bay, WI, At Hwys. 42 and 57, head north on Park Drive for 2.4 miles to the park entrance. The Hemlock Trail is accessible from parking lot 2 and from campsite 4.
