Arrowhead Wildlife Interpretive Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Drive fast enough and blink twice, and you could easily miss the Arrowhead Wildlife Interpretive Trail. It lies off a country road in a patch of former farmland. But the 377 acres of forest, ponds, and wetlands surrounding the trail are absolutely hopping with wildlife. Since 1980, the Department of Natural Resources has used this area to demonstrate methods of managing animals and their habitats, and an environmental education center on-site serves local schools.
The flat and easy trails make this natural lab accessible to young and old hikers, and you can turn to interpretive signs to identify and better understand the surprisingly vast and diverse plant and animal species. The area was once a fish hatchery, and the old water collection areas, or impoundments, are flooded during seasonal migrations of herons, egrets, and other waterfowl."
