This 5,000 acre forest unit is our designated Ruffed Grouse Management Area. This unit is specifically managed to provide excellent grouse and woodcock habitat and consequently receives substantial hunting pressure in the fall. There are multiple access points and parking areas to the unit: Hwy. 153, Twilight Road, Hunter’s Road, Guenther Road, Co. Hwy. C and LeatherCamp Drive. The main interior woods road running from Hwy. 153 to Hunter’s Road is well improved providing excellent hiking, mountain biking, and horse back riding. This unit is attached to the Kronenwetter Forest Unit on the north end.

Directions:  From Wausau take US 51 south 10 miles to east on STH 153 10 miles to parking lot on the south side of the road.  On the north side of the road is the parking lot to access Kronenwetter County Forest unit.
