Hiking trails are open during daylight hours. Please help us keep our trails in good condition for all visitors by adhering to the following requirements:
- Respect social distancing recommendations. This applies to all people, even when outdoors.
- Remain on the trails to prevent erosion in sensitive areas, damaging native plants, and running into poison ivy, which is abundant this year.
- Leave your pets at home.
- Pick up litter. Garbage and recycling receptacles are located under the covered patio next to the main entrance.
Thank-you for your cooperation.
Mosquito Hill Nature Center is an environmental education and recreation facility operated by the Outagamie County Parks Department. The center is open year-round on 441 acres adjacent to the Wolf River. An 11,000 square-foot interpretive building features natural history exhibits, hands-on displays, a gift shop, themed classrooms, meeting rooms, library and office. Find things to do on the event calendar. Environmental education or natural history programs are offered for schools, youth and adult groups by appointment. Trails and indoor exhibits are open to the public at no charge during these times.
A trail system for hiking or walking includes three miles of developed trails with a loop to scenic vistas on top of Mosquito Hill, one of the highest elevation points in the area. The All People’s Trail is a paved trail (.6 mile one-way) for more accessible wheelchair access. When the snow season arrives, check out our three signed snowshoe trails, one which takes you to the top of Mosquito Hill. Trails are open daily during daylight hours with the exception of the gun deer hunting season in November and shorter hunting seasons in December.
No pets are permitted on the property.
