Spring Hiking around Green Bay
Whether you’re looking to get a little exercise in, reduce your stress levels, or simply clear your head and enjoy nature, hiking delivers almost immediate rewards. Hiking provides us all with a chance to escape our often over-scheduled daily lives, and to experience the world directly and without a filter, and to rediscover the rhythms of the day and the seasons. Hiking at its best and purest form is is an unscripted experience where spontaneity is the rule. And, better still, most hikes are rewarding not only in the feelings of accomplishment, but in the often beautiful views found at the end of exhausting treks through wilderness.

Shimmering lakes and waterways, and the endless beauty found throughout northeastern Wisconsin, are often what drive visitors up to our area. However, we urge you to book a weekend stay with us in Green Bay, and discover the miles upon miles of scenic trails beyond these beautiful shores just waiting for your discovery.
