Snowshoeing in Neshota Park Denmark Wisconsin
Today I headed out to go snowshoeing in Neshota Park Denmark Wisconsin. The park is excellent in all seasons but the draw of it being only one of two parks in Brown County that is close to my house and I can snowshoe makes it my first stop.

If you don’t have a yearly pass, you have to stop and pay the fee.
In the Winter
As I told you above, there are not many parks that you can snowshoe in Brown County, only Barkhausen and Neshota Park are the two I know of at this time. Thus, I love spending some of my winter mornings between the two.
Most of the time, when I am out in the early morning, I am the only one parked in the lot and have the trails to myself. If I’m not the only one, I haven’t seen more than two cars on any given day. Early bird gets the worm at this location!
Each section of the park has different terrain. Some of the areas are well traveled during the winter, others are not. I like to explore the areas that are not.
There are challenges and even larger rewards when choosing the path less traveled.
Snowshoeing is a slower way to travel and allows for you to get out and explore nature in a whole new way. It also allows you to see areas that you can only explore when the earth is frozen solid.
You just never know what you are going to see on any given day. That is the beauty of nature.
Oh, and the wildlife doesn’t seem to understand what you are or what you are doing. Sometimes, you will see white-tailed deer, maybe a fox, a raccoon or one of several types of birds tweeting you a morning hello.
Doesn’t this make you want to strap on a pair of snowshoes? It does for me! If you see me on the trails, be sure to say hi!
