Hiking and Snowshoeing

Guests

For a hike on our land you can enjoy a quarter-mile stroll around the pond or a longer hike of five miles or more over our private trails .Pat & Michele Hawkins (EDITED)In winter we have snowshoes plus boots and wool socks for your use.

For even longer hikes or snowshoe recursions we have several choices for you:

Governor Knowles State Forest is located nearby, on the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix. Check “Maps” on the Governor Knowles web site. In particular, the Brandt Pines Interpretive Trail winds along the St. Croix through an old-growth stand of large red and white pine.

The Gandy Dancer Trail heading south from Danbury.is surfaced with crushed limestone for excellent footing.  With parking right at the trail and Wisconsin Highway 77 in Danbury, you can walk a half mile for a lovely view from the bridge over the Yellow River and then on for another half mile to Round Lake. .

St. Croix State Park has over 100 miles of hiking trails.
