Hiking Trails | Snowshoeing Trails | Nordic (XC) Skiing | Bike Trails
The nature area contains miles of hiking trails suitable for visitors of all ages and accessibility. The trails are usable year-round, with some of the best times to visit when there is enough snow to snowshoe out through the wet areas surrounding the pond. In addition to the gentle hiking trails, Paavola also offers a universally accessible crushed-gravel trail linking vantage points on the beaver pond and farmstead clearing. This looped trail, perfect for those with families or disabilities, takes you through a range of forested and wetland habitats and is an important component of the Copper Country Trail. Hunters are welcome to use the 40 acres located north of Highway US-41. There is a large parking area and trailhead with a pit toilet for the public to use during your visit.
