There are also various school programs available for any grade level.
The location of the facility is just east of New London, Wisconsin in Outagamie County.
A trail system for hiking or walking includes three miles of developed trails with a loop to scenic vistas on one of the highest elevation points in the area. The All People’s Trail provides a .6 mile of paved trail for wheelchair access. When the snow season arrives, one un-groomed cross-country skiing trail and five miles of snowshoe trails can provide winter enjoyment.

Our lowland snowshoe trails
remain closed due to open water and significant ice in the lowland forest. A
short upland trail has been established and is available to anyone with their
own snowshoes. Please check in at the main office or call for information,
