Hoffman Memorial Myrtle Grove is a shaded glen canopied with spectacular myrtlewood trees. There's no drinking water at the park. The myrtlewood tree is a relative of the bay laurel. Many people cook with myrtlewood leaves in place of bay leaves. Can you imagine the pungent aroma that will greet you as you enter this grove?
