Hulburt Creek Woods is comprised of 3 separate, though nearby, parcels within the Hulburt Creek Fishery Area in Sauk County. The creek is a picturesque trout stream winding through northern and southern dry-mesic forests and areas with sandstone cliffs and alder thickets. I have visited the easatern and western parcels so far. The western parcel is the easiest to reach. Fishery Area lands abut the road and it is a relatively easy walk through the forest into the SNA and to the creek from the north. The eastern parcel is a bit more difficult to reach and involves a somewhat steep descent from the road and after that, a wet walk through a marshy area and across Hulburt Creek to reach the photogenic cliffs and forest. I was on the search for a rare plant reported here a few decades ago, but did not find it on this day. I plan to visit this site a bit later in the year to search for that plant again, and also to visit in winter, which I think will afford some wonderful photographic opportunities.
