County Parks: Ash Creek Community Forest

IMG_0786a

Now that the annual invasion of outlanders has begun, the state parks get pretty crowded on weekends.  For me crowded would be seeing anyone else while hiking.  So last weekend I explored an out-of-the-way county park.  I was not disappointed.  The hike starts on this gravel road, only accessible to county vehicles, which takes you into the park.  The noise from the highway slowly disappears as you hike on this road.

Eventually the trails turn more into footpaths.  I found tracks for Deer and Coyotes, and I also found a Fox den.  The dense forest cover is, also, home to many types of wild birds.

These secluded and quiet parks can be found in every county in Wisconsin and the tourists usually don’t know about them, which gives me a quiet place to hike.

With plenty of cover and forage for the animals, this small trout stream provides the necessary water,

and hiking in those hills provided enough exercise for the day.
