Hidden Springs Trail at Cedars of Lebanon State Park and Forest Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The longest hiking trail in the park, this hike is well worth the exploration because of the large number of rare species of plants likely to be encountered along the trail, although most of the endemic species of flowers can be seen only from March through June.

This loop trail, marked with white blazes, can be followed in either direction and passes over mostly level ground. It makes a broad loop into state forest land and returns back to the trailhead.The rare glade anemone and a summer-flowering glade orchid are both found in the cedar glades."

"The Hidden Springs Trail loops through a geologically interesting landscape full of rock formations and sinks, depressions in the land’s surface that range from barely imperceptible wooded dips to rock fissures deeper than they are wide. Other surface features are shady thickets of cedar trees that thrive in the thin soils and cedar glades, open meadowlike areas scattered in the forest. Overall, the hiking is easy, with little change in elevation."
