Notes: According to the Wisconsin DNR website, the two easternmost 80 acre rectangular tracts are the best areas to visit. There is a parking lot just off of County Highway G on Zimmer Rd. from where one can walk N to get to the northwestern most tract. The hemlocks are tall, the forest canopy closed, with very little growth in the understory – the forest is completely transversable – and a greater diversity of mushrooms than I have ever seen at once. It was difficult to walk without stepping on a giant Russula or Amanita, or some other coral, hydnoid, or boletoid mushroom. It was one of the most beautiful forests I have seen. The collection of edible fungi is allowed on Wisconsin State Natural Area land.
