The Nature Center is in the heart of a network of hiking and cross-country ski trails extending from the Mississippi River to the top of La Crosse’s bluffs. Hixon Forest covers 630 acres of prairie and bluff land where timbering and quarrying took place at the turn of the century. On these trails you will have the opportunity to scramble up a trail to bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River Valley and take part in a nature-study project. On this hike, the terrain starts out easy but then grows very hilly and there is a good leg-stretching climb to the bluff top.
