Explore one of the most impressive old growth forests in the United States.

This memorial forest is named after Joyce Kilmer, who was killed during World War I. He was a soldier and a poet, and his most well-known poem is entitled “Trees.” The memorial forest is only accessible on foot, but there are restrooms and picnic tables located at the parking lot near the Kilmer National Recreation Trailhead. There is a lower and upper loop you can follow from this trail. The total distance if you decide to walk both loops is about 2 miles.

There are over 100 different tree species in this area, and it is a great spot for outdoor enthusiasts. Camping and overnight parking is not allowed, but you can visit the forest year-round during daytime hours. This forest features some of the tallest trees that may take your breath away.
