This 5,000 acre forest is located SE of Wausau and joins the Leather Camp forest unit on the southern end. This unit has excellent hiking and equestrian trails, as well as designated snowmobile trails in the winter. Park and ride trail head for Marathon County snowmobile trail system in winter months.

The main improved road system connects State Highway 153 on the south, to Pyke Road on the west and Martin Road on the north. The terrain fluctuates between fairly flat in the southern area, to gently rolling in the north. The forest has a nice mixture of oak, hardwoods, aspen and some pine plantations. Wildlife abound with deer, bear, grouse, woodcock, beaver and a host of songbirds. The land is a mix of upland forests and marsh. The unit is open to recreational hunting, horseback riding, snowmobiling, and hiking. Improved and forest trails are maintained for access. The forest's wooded area offers a nice selection of trails for nesting birds.
