The Reserve offers a variety of recreation: fishing and hunting; horseback, biking and hiking trails; cross-country skiing and snowshoeing; camping and canoeing. Motorized vehicles are not allowed on the Reserve trails (except for snowmobiles - in season).
Horseback and biking trails are open May 1 - November 15, weather permitting. Hiking is available year round. All visitors are required to purchase a permit. Permits are available at the Reserve Visitor Center and thirteen self-registration stations. You can download an annual visitor permit application form that can be completed and mailed. Please note that trails may be closed on short notice due to wet conditions. Pets must be on a leash from April 1st through July 31st which is nesting bird season. All other times pets must be under voice control.
