Hike Cook Forest Series: Deer Meadow Old Growth Area

Please meet at the entrance of   Forest Drive for an interpretive hike into the seldom visited old growth forests off Deer Meadow Trail.  Help us remeasure the    Gas Line Hemlock, largest double stem hemlock in the park, last measured at over 17ft around.  We’ll also work our way to the  Susquehannock Hemlock, the largest known hemlock in the Northeast!  Much of this hike will be off-trail through thick brush and hidden bowling ball size rocks.  Sturdy knees and ankles required!
