Nestled in the wooded, glacial hills of Washburn County, Hunt Hill is one of northern Wisconsin’s most beautiful and diverse natural areas. About seven miles of trails explore the nearly 600 acres of majestic forests, meadow, bogs and pristine glacial lakes, Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary offers an ideal setting to experience nature.

Trails are free and open to the public during daylight hours.

Dogs are allowed on the trails as long as they are on a leash and all waste is picked up and packed out. 
Horses, bikes, and ATVs are not allowed on the trails. 

The Discovery Trail, labeled Barred Owl Trail on trail maps, is a great experience for families. Each month, themed items are hidden along this 1/3 mile trail. Similar to an ‘I Spy’, families are encouraged to hike the trail to see how many of the items they can find!

Currently, trails are not groomed in the winter. Snowshoes are available for guests to use at no cost. 

Donations are greatly appreciated to help us maintain the trails and grounds. Donations can be put into the white donation boxes attached to the kiosks in camp.  

Trail Reports

Updated February 24, 2023

General Status: The freezing rain on 2/27 created a crust of ice on the trails, and the snowfall on 3/1 left us with about 2 inches of dense snow. Be extra careful, especially in the parking lot and on the paved paths as they are slippery. Snowshoes or ice cleats are highly recommended.

Discovery Trail Theme: Trolls!
