With six trails ranging from .75 to 4.3 miles in length, Brunet Island State Park offers cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, birding, and snowshoeing opportunities. The landscape in Chippewa County is a product of the most recent Ice Age. With its rolling terrain and a wide variety of forest types, it is home to many wildlife. The Fisher River bays and lagoons are a great place to see beaver, mink, herons, and deer. The park’s eight miles of hiking trails take you into different birding habitats. Hike the wetlands along the river to find Hermit Thrushes, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Nashville Warblers, White-throated Sparrows, and Northern Parula Warbler. The bays surrounding the islands on the river hold Great Blue Herons, Hooded Mergansers, Mallards, and Blue-winged teal.
