Located in the State Wildlife Area, a large parking lot just north of the city of Horicon off Highway 33 provides access to one of the best views of Horicon Marsh. Included at the trailhead of this 1.5-mile loop, an observation deck over open water provides extended views to Fourmile Island, a great blue heron rookery. Starting in a wooded area the trail descends to swampy lowland that includes a pond where blue heron, great egrets, and a variety of ducks may be viewed. Quick's Point Hiking Trail also affords one of the best opportunities to view white-tailed deer, muskrat, and raccoon.
The trail is accessible from dawn until 10 PM. Pets prohibited. Cross-country skiing is permitted, however, trails are not groomed.
At the trailhead visitors find the DNR Field office where free literature may be obtained and free talks may be attended. This area is slated for the Horicon Marsh International Education Center.
Directions: From Horicon, WI, Take Palmatory Street north off Hwy. 33 to reach the parking area along with the DNR Field Office.
