Bitzke Waterfowl Refuge
This area was designated as a Waterfowl Refuge in 1985 by the Department of Natural Resources. There are five major earthen dams providing open water for a host of various songbirds, waterfowl, deer, turkey and beavers. The trail system is approximately 2 miles and will take you along the waterfowl flowages. There are six interpretive displays along the trail and an observation tower to give you a full overall view of the refuge. The trails are open year round. The public is required to stay on the marked trail from Sept 1 to Nov 15, due to the refuge status. Hunting is also prohibited from Sept 1 to Nov 15.
From Wausau take Hwy 29 east, turn north onto Hwy J, turn east onto G to Rocky Rd. north to parking lot.
