With over 8.5 miles of trails, Bubolz Nature Preserve in Appleton, Wisconsin offers year round access to nature. The trail systems provides several trail options for hiking, walking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Cross Country Ski trails are groomed. View Winter Trail Map.



The recent rain and warm weather has left our ski trails slushy and wet with patches of ice. With the forecast continuing to be warm and rainy, we have made the decision to end our ski and snowshoe rentals for the year.
