The freshwater Black River briskly cuts its way through rocky Hacklebarney State Park, cascading around boulders in the hemlock-lined ravine. Two tributaries, Rinehart and Trout Brooks, also course their way through this glacial valley, feeding the Black River. Even in the heat of midsummer, the temperature of Black River gorge is cool and refreshing.

Today Hacklebarney is a favorite place for avid anglers, hikers and picnickers, yet in the 19th century the park was a mined iron ore site. The gushing river against the grey boulders and dark green hemlocks creates a majestic beauty in any season.

Three rare and endangered plant species exist within the park: American ginseng, leatherwood and Virginia pennywort. Over a hundred bird species and wildlife such as black bear, woodchuck, deer and fox live in the park.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 8 Beautiful Park by Anne
Bill and I visited Hacklebarney Park on a warm September day. Loved this beauitiful park and the sound of the rushing water from the Black River. We walked along the paths, climbed the rocks and sat and admired the beautiful surroundings. We will definitely go back in the summer.
