On a recent camping trip to Mohican State Park Linda and I had the chance to hike the Hemlock Gorge Trail.
We were camping with our T&B QMax trailer. Notice how we were easily able to turn our trailer around so we faced my sister and her husbands trailer on the right. Have to have those EZ Up canopies… Time to hit the trail….
Yes.. 3 miles to the covered bridge making it a 6mile round trip hike….(my legs hurt LOL)…One good point there is very little elevation change..
Trail starts out wide and level..
Hiking from Campground A to Campground B the river is on your left..
Tube launch area which Linda used a little later…
“The 1,110-acre Mohican State Park and the adjacent 4,525-acre state forest are outstanding in their beauty and offer limitless opportunities for visitors to explore one of Ohio's most unique natural regions. The striking Clear Fork Gorge, hemlock forest and scenic Mohican River offer a wilderness experience while the resort lodge and cottages provide luxurious accommodations.”
Notice one of the rental cottages on the other side of the river…
Many Many years ago I lived about twenty miles from Mohican State Park.
Trail narrows and gets a little rougher. Linda and I met a young woman running the trail. Linda observed that Liz must be sure footed. Liz said, “I’m from the little town of Glacier Washington at the foot of Mt. Baker. No problem running the trail here.” Liz is visiting Ohio, hopefully some day Linda and I will visit the Mt. Baker area in Washington State.
“The Mohican River is a principal tributary of the Walhonding River, about 40 miles (64 km) long, in north-central Ohio in the United States. Via the Walhonding, Muskingum and Ohio Rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Mississippi River, draining an area of 999 square miles (2,587 km²).”
Just follow the whit blazes……
We are getting close to the end of the trail. Relief is in sight..
Linda and I definitely give Mohican State Park two thumbs up for viewing and hiking. Notice:: it says to call 911 in and emergency.. No cell coverage on this trail …sorry…
The Lyons Falls trail starts on the other side of the bridge…. Linda and I hiked that trail the next day. The Class B campground at this end of the Hemlock Gorge trail seemed very nice for tent camping and was not crowded at all.
River view from the middle of the bridge. I hear there is some good fishing on this part of the river.
Linda and I say, “Thanks for stopping by and we hope you are able to get out into the great outdoors and do a little hiking.”
