Principal Wildlife: Grouse, squirrels, ducks, pheasants, deer, furbearers, (beaver, opossum).
Recreation: Birdwatching, berry picking, hunting, hiking.
Habitat: Marsh, farmland, woodland, wetlands.
No motorized vehicles allowed on trails.
Cross country skiing is possible but trails are not groomed.
Comments: Heavily used by hunters in the fall months. Willow River is on the southern side of the area but there is little fishing done at this point. Black Brook passes through the middle area.
Access is provided by easy-to-walk-on trails (motor vehicle wide) by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. However most travel off the trails is difficult due to heavy vegetation and numerous marshlands, up to a half mile in length. Although the area is only 3 miles long, a compass for off-trail travel is highly recommended.
