NEW GLARUS WOODS STATE PARK
New Glarus Woods is a 411-acre state park offering camping, hiking, picnicking and snowshoeing. The park also offers direct access to The Sugar River State Trail, a 23-mile, 265-acre, State Park trail surfaced with compressed limestone screenings, for bicycling, hiking, snowmobiling and, in some areas, hunting. Take advantage of the many opportunities for recreation or relaxation in the area.
A program of burning, mowing and seeding is being used to restore three areas to their original prairie condition before European settlement. The projects began with seeding a 20-acre area north of the walk-in sites. The others are a five-acre plot in the woods north of the Group Campground and a 55-acre area along Highway 69 south of County Trunk NN. If you are interested in helping with these restorations as a volunteer, please contact park staff.
