Old Growth Trails to use: Shindagin and Green Lakes, NY?

I plan an old growth hike this weekend and would like to hit at least 2 places along the way I need to go. Green Lakes State Park is one. I see that the trail on the south side of Round Lake is one area of old growth- any others at Green Lakes? here is the map: https://parks.ny.gov/parks/attachments...

Zurich Bog old growth? (Newark NY)

I just ran into reference to old growth in a bog, about halfway between Rochester and Syracuse (near Newark, NY). Anybody know anything about this one?

Old Growth in PA near Elmira NY? Rickets Glen? Bark Cabin?

I will be down in the Elmira area in a week or so and am looking for some new old growth to gawk at. Wiki says the Evergreen trail in Ricketts Glen has a hemlock that predates 1492- true? Other good places to go in Ricketts? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricketts_Glen_State_Park#Glens_Natural_Area B...

Re: Allegany State Park

I visited Allegany last winter and deciphered Bruces directions for the old growth patch at the old stone bridge (fairly near the office) and hiked a bit in the snow to the left (easy) side of the bridge. The thing is- it looked nothing like old growth areas I have seen before. The book did mention ...

Re: Typical age of 20" diam Hemlock in climax forest?

Here are some photos of trees at IBM Glen. The biggest Hemlock in the woods at the top of the gorge seemed to be around 20" diam (lots of them). In the gorge I saw 2 or 3 that were much larger.

Typical age of 20" diam Hemlock in climax forest?

I was hiking in IBM Glen (NY state- fingerlakes) which has a nature preserve and says that the Hemlocks are old growth. Many trees were marked for cutting before a last minute reprieve and conversion to a preserve. These trees seem a bit small for old growth (typ. 20" diam). Question: do hemlocks in...

Re: Posting of directions to Old Growth Forests?

I find that in looking for OG places to visit, I need to do extensive research )thank goodness for the internet!) to locate most of them. Most often I have only a place name (ie; Smith Woods) to go on and find bits and pieces of info from 20 or more sites and can figure out where a place may be. I w...
