Plum Creek Forest Resources Trail

Plum Creek is the second largest private timberland owner in the United States with 548,000 acres in Wisconsin. This 9-mile auto trail is well marked and has a full color guidebook that is available at the site. This logging road takes you past creeks, marshes, spruce forest, aspen stands, hardwoods, and old growth pine. Boreal species like Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, and Yellow-bellied Flycatcher can be seen. Many species of warblers can be found here including Golden-winged, Mourning and Canada. Clear-cut areas attract flocks of warblers, thrushes and sparrows. Mammals include wolves, fishers, deer and bear.
