Duck Egg County Forest

At 707 acres, Duck Egg County Forest is managed for timber. But it's also a flood control project on the North Fork of the Bad Axe River. The Duck Egg Flood Control Dam is large; its spillways and pools attract waterfowl and herons. Hiking trails take you up steep valleys to a hilltop overlook of the spillways. The wooded hillsides are filled with warblers in the spring and fall and the wooded countryside provides a colorful display in the fall.
