“Cathedral State Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

This state park was probably more beautiful before Super Storm Sandy. Now many trees are down and/or dead. Some trails are closed. Picnic area and children's play area is closed. But there is still an abundance of huge hemlock trees and other flora. We got bit lost on the Cathedral Trail and finally walked out to the main road. But the path we did walk was easy and there were multiple places for picture taking.

“Majestic trees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

This lesser known State Park IS known for its giant hemlock trees. There was ongoing construction for a new visitor's center. In addition, many trees had been felled by recent storms. Nonetheless, we enjoined walking among the leafy giants.

“Quiet beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

This park is a forest with very old trees and is dark and mysterious. I believe it may be closed due to damage from the winter storms. Check before visiting. There are picnic tables, restrooms, and nearby accommodations.

“Take a hike!”

This small park with beautiful virgin Hemlock trees is a wonderful place to go for a walk and explore. Accessible trails, a great stop for families with children. :) Close your eyes and breathe that fresh air!
