Hunt Hill is a 600 acre sanctuary with 13 miles of hiking trails that go around and through old growth and cutover forest, glacial lakes, fen, bog, marsh and prairie. With varied habitats, Hunt Hill is ideal for observing a variety of wildlife within a short hike of the parking area. Trails vary from 1/3 mile up to a 3 mile loop and are open and free to the public during daylight hours year round. In the winter, snowshoes are available for use and winter trails are kept up by volunteer snowshoe hikers. The family-friendly Discovery Trail features hidden items that are changed out monthly. A nature playground is located behind the farmhouse and open during daylight hours. The property includes two designated state natural areas. Common species seen at Hunt Hill include Bald Eagles, Sandhill Cranes, Loons, Green Herons, Great Blue Herons, many warblers, songbirds, raptors and grouse.
