Havenwoods State Forest Activities and recreation

Hiking Hiking

More than six miles of trails invite hikers, runners and joggers to explore the property's woods, wetlands and grasslands. With several different trail segments visitors can choose a hike of varying length.

Several geocaches and way marks can be found at Havenwoods State Forest. Complete the Trek Through Time, a geocaching adventure and earn a collectable wooden geotoken.

Picnicking Picnic areas

Visitors can picnic anywhere in the forest. There are picnic tables in the Urban Arboretum and next to the parking lot. No fires or grills are allowed. The Wisconsin State Park System has a carry in/carry out policy. Please do not leave garbage and recyclables at the forest.

Bicycling Bicycling

The limestone trails and asphalt roads (about two miles) are open to bicycles. Please use caution as these trails are shared with hikers.

Pets Pets

Where permitted, pets are allowed in the forest on a leash 8 feet or shorter. To ensure everyone’s enjoyment, visitors are required to clean up any waste left by their pets. Pets are prohibited in areas shown shaded on the forest map.

Winter Activities Winter activities

Cross-country skiers are welcome at the forest. Trails are not groomed. The terrain at Havenwoods is flat, providing a good place for beginners.

Snowshoers are welcome throughout the forest. As a courtesy to skiers, snowshoers are asked to stay off of established ski tracks. Snowshoes can be borrowed when the nature center is open.
