The Beaver Brook trails are located in the beautiful Beaver Brook State Wildlife area. Managed by the Wisconsin DNR, the Wildlife Area features open wetlands, natural springs, trout streams, and several small lakes. The forest is mixed hardwoods with frequent stands of red oaks, aspen, birch, and swamp hardwoods. Mixed conifers, pines, tamarack, and spruce are also common. Several open fields along the trails create opportunities to see wildlife.
The terrain features rolling hills with several flat stretches. The cross-country ski trails are groomed and tracked for classic only. Grooming is generally very good and timely. Visitors will also find a wonderful system of ungroomed-backcountry snowshoe trails. Pets are welcome, but please keep them off the groomed tracks.
Despite the close location of some the trails to the Highway, the occasional, slight hum of traffic does little to mar the experience of skiing or snowshoeing here.
The entire trail system lies within the Beaver Brook State Wildlife Area, Wisconsin DNR.
