Snowshoeing

About

Attention Levis Mound Users:
Levis Mound has recently lost its Shelter, Restrooms & Water access due to a large fire.   Temporary water access and toilets are now available on site. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause in your enjoyment of Levis Mound Recreation Area.  Please know that we are doing our very best to fix these problems as soon as possible.  We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.


Snowshoeing is allowed throughout the Clark County Forest. Clark County has over 160 miles of trails, plus logging access trails and hunter trails that allow snowshoeing at various skill levels.

The Levis/Trow Mound Recreation Area consists of 24 miles of backcountry snowshoeing trails, ranging in skill level from easy to most difficult. Some trails are very steep and difficult, but a rewarding challenge. Snow shoeing is permitted on all single-track hiking and biking trails within the Levis/Trow Mound area. The trail system was designed for multiple use non-motorized recreation activities.

Wildlife Viewing
Winter use of the trail provides an excellent opportunity for wildlife viewing and tracking. Deer, fox, coyote and even a rare wolf from the Central Wisconsin pack, can be seen here. Exploring the sandstone outcroppings near the top of the mounds and within the forested valleys can be a great outdoor experience.

Facility
The Levis Mound Trail Center includes facilities such as trailhead, water, bathrooms, maps and large parking area.
