Trail System

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.

The hiking trails will be closed, Saturday, November 21 through Sunday, November 29, for the gun deer hunting season. While hunting is NOT PERMITTED on the nature center grounds, surrounding land owners may hunt on their own property. Trails are closed during that time to keep everyone safe.

was started in 2012 as a global day of giving back and doing good for others and is how the nonprofit world welcomes the giving season.
 What we are asking is that you keep our nature center in mind while you ponder how to share your resources.
As we move into 2016, our plans to update our well-used and worn displays, as well as establish an outdoor natural playscape and treehouse are gaining momentum! Any gift you make on #GivingTuesday (December 1st) will be put towards the renovation and preservation of Mosquito Hill Nature Center.
Thank you for considering the beauty and treasures of our natural world and preserving it for those following in our path.


 The Elusive Fisher and its Cousins
Saturday, December 5
1:00 – 2:30 PM


After spending two winters trying to document their presence at MHNC, naturalist Jessica Miller and volunteers finally captured two adult fishers on trail cameras in early 2015. This larger and feistier cousin of the weasel once roamed only forests in the northern part of the state after its reintroduction in the 50’s and 60’s. Learn about the history and biology of this mammal and its cousins the weasel, mink, marten and wolverine.
