Hepburn Woods in West Bend

Activities: Birding, Hiking, Snowshoeing, Wildlife Viewing


A 20-acre Ozaukee Washington Land Trust property located in the City of West Bend. This preserve contains wooded hills and is home to wild turkey, white-tailed deer and hosts a tremendous variety of migratory songbirds. There is an ongoing effort to protect the hardwood forest by continuously removing the area’s aggressive invasive species. The extreme topography of glacial ridges and kettles epitomizes this area’s natural beauty and geological significance.


Hepburn Woods is contiguous with Glacial Blue Hills Recreation Area, which is where you can park. The preserve can be accessed from the Ice Age Trail, which runs north and south through adjacent woodlands. Visit this preserve to hike or bird watch. Pets on leash welcome.


A Glacial Blue Hills mountain bike trail skirts the preserve property line.
