Description


The West Lake Nature Preserve is a 110-acre wetland bog with 1,400 feet of frontage along West Lake and within close proximity to Portage's city center. The Preserve boasts a variety of upland, woodland and sensitive wetland areas with unique plant species and animal habitats. Two miles of hiking trails are available, featuring a winding bark trail that meanders through a shaded lowland forest, and ends with a boardwalk promenade leading across a picturesque bog with panoramic view of West Lake.
