This hidden spot boasts four season fun. In the summer, the native plants and Prairie, the Shaded forests and Park shelter are great. Because of all the trees, the Fall colors are spectacular. In Winter, the trails are groomed and there are challenging Hills and...More

Challenging ski trails in the winter, but to be honest it is a little “ski elite”. Dogs and snowshoes are not welcome. Even if you visit in the summer the large “no dogs” sign is a little off. Hilly challenging hiking, good spot for fall...More

We go to Hoffman Hills once or twice a year to enjoy the wonderful view of the Chippewa Valley. The hiking is not too strenuous if it's not a hot, humid Wisconsin day. Bring bug spray for the summer and some water. The fall colors...More

This is a great place to hike, especially if you want a workout; it's hilly & there's a tower you can climb. I've done it a number of times and haven't been disappointed. I've snowshoed there as well.

This beautiful area is a gem in Dunn County. You can walk several trails and if your ambitious, climb to the top of the tower for the best view around. Take your camera - especially in the fall. It is a great place to get...More

We've visited Hoffman Hills many times and have always enjoyed hiking the many trails. They have a network of easy to hard trails a person can take. Some of the "hard" trails may require a cane or hiking stick for some people and you could...More

We went in the winter and it was a very peaceful walk. It wasn't too busy, but if it were there is a nice parking lot. There are also bathrooms just in case you forgot to go before you left home. The walking isn't anything...More
