Mountain Springs Loop


This is a moderate 7-8 mile loop in Ricketts Glen State Park and SGL 57.* It is an excellent hike that follows established trails and old grades, although some trails do not have blazes or signs.* It features deep hemlock forests, a gorge with a cascading stream, two lakes, and vistas.* There are also remnants of the ice industry that once existed in the isolated valley.* I also stopped by the site of the former lumber*town of Ricketts, once home to 800 people, now gone.* It is amazing how many lives came and went in such an isolated place.*
