Nestled in the wooded, glacial hills of Washburn County, Hunt Hill is one of northern Wisconsin’s most beautiful and diverse natural areas. Hunt Hill is located in the heart of northwestern Wisconsin and is just over 2 hours northeast of Minneapolis. Situated on over 500 acres of majestic forests, meadow, bogs and pristine glacial lakes, our Nature Center and Audubon Sanctuary offers an ideal setting to experience nature.
At Hunt Hill, quiet contemplation and nature adventures are easily discovered. Find yourself hiking amid gentle rolling hills, clear glacial lakes and spectacular wildflowers. Awaken to the sounds of the lake shore as nesting loons, osprey and sandhill cranes begin their day.
The summer season always finds Hunt Hill alive with wildlife. Paddle quietly through our calm waters while you search the shores for our nesting osprey and loon, or the concealed lodges of beaver and elusive otter. Hike our trails and boardwalks to discover the world of carnivorous plants on our floating bog or the varieties of wildflowers in our prairie. Bring your GPS unit and discover the many caches hidden around camp.
Hike the trails, cross over on one of the two footbridges or take a rest on one of the many Leopold benches. On the prairie you can stop at the platform and visit our outdoor classroom. Miles of hiking trails and two clear glacial lakes make the possibilities for outdoor adventure endless. All hiking trails are open to the public dawn to dusk year round and are free. Donations are appreciated and can be placed in the white donation boxes attached to the kiosks. Download a Hunt Hill Trail map.
