Texas Island Woods State Natural Area #603 comprises 72 acres of mature hardwood forest and was established in 2010. Note that most state natural areas do not have public facilities like restrooms.
This Google Map roughly shows how to get to the natural area, but you will need to follow the instructions below to find the parking area. We will meet at the parking area and walk together into the natural area.
From the intersection of County Highways F and E in Sullivan, go south on County Highway E 2.5 miles to a DNR parking area west of the road. Hike west 0.5 miles into the natural area.Wisconsin DNR
We highly recommend you look at and print this map from the DNR. Note the location of the parking lot. Also note that the natural area is an “island” with swampy and marshy areas surrounding it on all sides. I think the maturity of the forest, with its natural beauty and the amazing mushrooms I expect us to find, will make the drive and 10 minute trek well worth it.
