Outdoor Recreation

Howell Woods provides a number of outdoor recreation outlets for use by the general public- hiking, horseback, and biking trails, fishing, and camping. Some require you to pay a small user's fee which is used to maintain and improve the facility.

It is important for you to follow a few rules and regulations to accommodate the multiple uses of the property. In addition, some road/trails or specific outdoor activities may have certain temporary restrictions depending on other activities that may be occurring.

You should call ahead at least 24 hours to determine if the area or outdoor activity you wish to enjoy is open or available. Should you be unable to reach a staff member, current restrictions or additional information will be posted on the information board at the Learning Center building.

Howell Woods is actively managed for the benefit of wildlife, educational opportunities, and low impact outdoor recreation.
