The DNR maintains hunter walking trails as easy ways to travel by foot through wildlife management areas, state and federal forests and other public hunting lands.

The trails wind through prime habitat for ruffed grouse, American woodcock, wild turkey and white-tailed deer. There are more than 850 miles of hunter walking trails meandering throughout the northern half of the state. Many of the trails are gated, allowing foot traffic only, and offer easy access to parking lots for public use.

The DNR offers a hunter walking trail tool online that provides information on trail locations by name and county. One can also call area wildlife offices for information about the trails, as well as hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities and tips.
