John P. Saylor Trail Loop
Named for the late Congressman who co-authored many legislative bills to help conserve and protect the environment, this route takes hikers into an area where loggers of the Babcock Lumber Company once claimed the abundant growths of hemlock that thrived in this region. Along the way, the trail passes grassy fields, an old apple orchard that grew from the seeds of long discarded apples and a wetland area surrounding two old railroad beds. The route can be shortened to a single day hike of 11.2 miles by avoiding the southern loop. Wolf Rocks is located at mile 11 and offers a chance to do some bouldering and exploration through the large blocks.
