We previously visited White Pine Hollow State Forest in this blog here, here, and here. I wrote nothing about the place at that time although I am obviously quite taken with it. The portion of the forest designated as a preserve is rough–no finished paths, no picnic tables, and no people. One has to tramp down a long grade with poor footing to get to the cold water stream and what remains of the stand of White Pine. I shall spare you any quotations of Thoreau. Suffice it to say that the silence of that forest is restorative.
