Property Description

250 acres and 3 valleys with 210 acre forest woodland; 40 acres of wildlife pasture, suitable for horses, lamas or other grazing animals; 160 acres of virgin forest and the remaining woodland has not been logged since 1975.

Pure water with 12 cool, drinkable fresh water springs, 6 "auto skimming" ponds and 3 wetlands. All water starts from springs on property and is uncontaminated by neighboring farms. Streams on the property flow directly into Big Creek and then into the Buffalo River, which both provide Class A trout fishing.

Over 25 miles of groomed trails on the property. These trails provide year round hiking, Atv, Utv, snowmobiling and horseback riding. The woods, virtually mosquito free due to bat habitat programs, has creek bridges and resting areas with benches. The property has year round direct access to the Buffalo River Trail which connects directly to the Clark, Chippewa and Jackson County Forests and the Eau Claire snowmobile trails.

Trophy deer hunting and many wildlife habitat programs have been implemented at the Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary. The area features deer, coyotes, fox, eagles, turkey, grouse, pheasant, geese, ducks and squirrels and an occasional bear or wolf. The Sanctuary has become home for many animals released by the Chippewa Valley Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Pleasant Valley and surrounding 2000 acres have been in a quality deer management program for 30 years. The property also provides abundant turkey, grouse, pheasant and squirrel hunting.
