The Mosquito Hill Nature Center is open year round with both indoor and outdoor opportunities on 430 acres adjacent to the Wolf River. Inside are natural history exhibits, hands-on displays, a gift shop, themed classrooms, meeting rooms, and a library. Find things to do on the event calendar. There are also various school programs available for any grade level.
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.

The nature center's snowshoe trails are currently closed due to poor snow conditions and intermittent water in the lowland forest. We are not renting snowshoes at this time but upland hiking trails are available for snowshoeing if you have your own snowshoes.
