If you enjoy the outdoors and are up for a walk the hatchery has over three miles of trails that provide an excellent opportunity for wildlife observation or simply enjoying the great outdoors. Birders will find the trail a productive one as many of the feathered species found in this state may be observed along the route. Come often as the experience changes with the seasons. Trail access is available from several locations and is open year around. You will have the opportunity to cross country ski on a groomed trail during the winter months as the weather permits. You won't be disappointed.
The hatchery is also a proud participant in the annual Physically Challenged Children's Fishing Derby in conjunction with the Great Planers Trout and Salmon Club. The hatchery is located in a recreation area that draws in an excess of 2 million visitors annually.
