Millers Head

Millers Head Professional Review and Guide

"This is a short hike starting from the Skyland complex leads to an observation platform with delightful views. The Limberlost Trail has been designed to be ADA accessible and is the only such trail in the park. However, the path is certainly not limited to that use. The nearly level path is lined with mountain laurel. Until recently, it was also rimmed by ancient hemlock trees, some said to be 400 years old.

Sadly, the exotic insect pest known as the wooly adelgid, which sucks the stored food from the hemlock needles, wreaked havoc on Limberlost’s hemlocks. The oak trees in Limberlost have also suffered greatly due to gypsy moth invasions. However, wildflowers bloom in spring and summer; white pine, birch, and maple trees still flourish in this beautiful place. Limberlost is truly “the story of a changing forest.”"
