Little Wolf Creek crosses Rt. 615 at the same spot where the Appalachian Trail crosses Rt. 615. Towering eastern hemlocks dominate this area of moist mossy forest with rhododendrons thickly lining the understory along the creek. Although bisected by Rt. 615, this site has a feeling of remote pristine wilderness, with wild turkeys and white-tailed deer appearing around almost every turn. Birds found in this area include woodpeckers and a good assortment of woodland passerines.
From I-81, take exit #70/US 52 north 12.1 miles to the top of the ridge. Cross the ridge, going north, and continue 5.0 miles to Rt. 615. Turn left and continue 2.9 miles to a parking pullout on the left.
