Hiking along this lush, shaded trail in  Wildcat Mountain State Park trail is a great way to replenish. 

Take the unnamed road that turns off of Highway 33 (see map). At the end of this road is a parking lot and the trailhead. The trail will take you along the Kickapoo River in a 2.7 mile loop through hemlock forest. You can see exposed rock formations on this trail.
