hemlock trees

Much of the trail passes beneath hemlock.

Did you miss spring? Well, go farther north or climb higher, such as onto the Hoosac plateau. Specifically, try the section of the Mohican-Mohawk Trail from Drury, atop Florida Mountain, to the Cold River at the Savoy line. This hike runs downhill about 1 1/2 miles, losing a couple hundred net feet in elevation and returning up the same.
