Located just west of the Mead Wildlife Area, Little Bear Hemlocks is one of four isolated woodlots - remnants of the once vast forest that historically occupied this landscape. This Hemlock trees dominate this 59-acre parcel many over 30 inches in diameter. The numerous trees and ferns provide a scenic area to go walking through during the warmer months and cross country skiing in the winter. This is one of the very few old-growth forest parcels remaining and is an excellent teaching and research site to study the effects of management on fragments of a once vast forest.
