Honoring the famous poet for the line, “I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree“ — this 2-mile stretch of road represents his sentiments perfectly. Explore the nearby Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. At 3,800 acres, it is now the largest stand of old growth trees in the eastern United States. Hike the easy 2-mile Joyce Kilmer Recreation Trail to experience the magnificence of these untouched trees, some over 400 years old.
