Richard Bong State Recreation Area
Bong is a combination of prairie and wetlands with scattered small wooded areas. The terrain is generally flat with some gentle rolling hills and a couple of sections with small but steep hills. The area has trails for hiking, cross country skiing (not groomed), biking, horseback riding, and ATVs. There's also WolfLake (more of a large pond than a lake) where you can launch a canoe or kayak. The trails surface is primarily mowed grass with some dirt/mud areas. May through early June is the absolute best times to walk the trails at Bong since the prairie seems to be exploding with life during this time. Later in the summer as the area dries out things start to turn a bit brown. For more info click HERE
