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.

Some of our lowland snowshoe trails are now open. Due to open water, fragile ice and downed trees, we will continue to keep the BLUE and the GREEN snowshoe trails closed. The RED, BLACK and BROWN snowshoe trails will remain open. Snow conditions in the lowland forest are not ideal but we will rent snowshoes this weekend between the hours of 9:30 AM and 2:00 PM.
|Serious Snowshoe Sundays
Sundays, January 3 – February 21 12:00 noon – 3:00 PM
Snowshoeing is a great cardiovascular workout and this year
we’re pairing it with a little bit of yoga. Naturalists Jessica Miller
and Mary Swifka will guide participants each week, not for a leisurely
hike, but for a bout of invigorating exercise, increasing our speed and
distance as the weeks progress. If snow conditions are not adequate and
we cannot snowshoe, a walking hike will be substituted. A light snack
and warm beverage will be included each week.
$5/session or $30/for all 8 classes. Price includes snowshoe rental, if needed.
