Moccasin Creek State Park: Hemlock Falls Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"What makes the Hemlock Falls Trail so glorious is that Moccasin Creek is your constant companion—and a rowdy one at that. The wide stream doesn’t just “flow” through this lush ravine, it slips, slides, tumbles, and falls in white heaps of churning water. Its roar fills the surrounding forest, which is sometimes bright green, and other times shaded and moody.
The trail is not especially difficult, which makes it popular, but its greatest appeal is the set of falls a little less than a mile in. After a 15-foot drop, Hemlock Falls comes down like a hammer, pounding a broad, black and tan rock slab before fanning out into a pool."
