Try exploring the Ephemeral Trail & Boardwalk in the Mead Wildlife Area, the third largest state wildlife area. The 2-mile trail, which showcases scenic boardwalk sections, is a great place to snowshoe. To get there, travel west from Stevens Point on Highway 66 West to Highway HH West (the old Highway 10) to Milladore. Take Highway S North to enter the wildlife area. The Mead Education & Visitors Center is on the right hand side.

Plenty of hiking is available within the wildlife area. Bird watching is always spectacular-273 species of birds have been recorded here. A $2 million Education and Visitors Center opened in 2005.
