A short walk along a crushed greenstone surface. The Limberlost Trail, once lined by ancient hemlocks, can provide inspiration for all. Addie Pollock laid the groundwork for preserving the Limberlost Forest. About 1920 she bought one hundred of the largest trees in the area for $1,000. Because the Limberlost has been designated an Outstanding Natural Area, no bicycles, pets, or camping is allowed along the trail. The newly reconstructed trail was officially dedicated in the summer of 1997.
