Located about three miles south of Fond du Lac, Hobbs Woods is a 60-acre county park devoted to hiking and nature study. Most of the park is thickly wooded, but several acres of prairie, planted in 1979-80, are coming along well. Parsons Creek carves a large ravine through the park, and harbors some naturally reproducing brook trout. About three miles of nature trails, which are keyed to a self-guiding brochure, wind through the park. The park is quite popular for hiking in the spring, summer and fall and for cross-country skiing during the winter. Recent improvements at Hobbs Woods include an enlargement of the parking lot, and a great deal of work by the former Wisconsin Conservation Corps and parks crews to enhance trout habitat and reduce stream bank erosion in Parsons Creek. Other work has included removal of deadfalls or dead trees, which threaten to fall on trails or restrict the flow of the creek.
