Hartwick Pines State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Prior to the rise of the logging industry, old-growth trees dominated this state. These days there are very few examples left, but this park takes its name from 49 acres of old-growth pine that were part of an 8,000-acre donation to the state from Karen Hartwick, daughter of a logging company founder. The lumber museum on-site, built by a CCC work crew, was her request. Despite all the trees, just under half the campsites actually have only a small amount of shade. The other half of the sites are in thicker tree cover. Trails total over 15 miles."
