Wildlife and waterfowl abound in the Wilson Flowage area located in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest where a ½-mile non-motorized gravel trail located between two flowages leads you along a 266-acre glacial ridge to a wide vista. Due to the diversity of water and hunting habitat, the trail is great for both bird watchers and hunters. It passes through aspen stands and ends on a peninsula at the north end of Wilson Flowage. Along the way you will find natural vistas, trail-side exhibits, interpretive signs, active beavers, and other wildlife. The area is home to several bird species and has an active Osprey nest which can be viewed from Gates Lake Road, travel west from the parking lot and look north. Signature species include Ring-necked Duck, Wood Duck, Hooded Merganser, Osprey, Trumpeter Swan, Canada Goose, and the Common Loon.
