Book Time at the Writing Center
Hike & Write Series
We are pleased to announce a new Hike & Write Series to take place on the trails at the new Writing Center in Juddville. Each month, there will be a new theme for hikes, ideal for families, individuals, and those looking for a safe, beautiful, outdoor activity.
Activity booklets that guide visitors on a hike are available at the trailhead and by clicking on the button below.
February 2021: Find the Benches, Find the Beauty
February's guided hike is a search for beautiful cedar donor benches, carved by Norm Wiedemeier. Each bench also features an etched brass nature plaque by Mary Ellen Sisulak, and hides a special word, chosen by the donor of the bench. The writing activities invite visitors to explore nature and pause at the benches for creative writing and drawing.
The half-mile loop starts behind the Writing Center at 4210 Juddville Road and, with activities, takes about an hour to walk and write. No reservations necessary. The Writing Center building is open to the public by reservation Tuesday through Sunday 10 am - 4 pm. Restroom facilities for hikers only available during open hours.
Available Winter Hours
For your safety, and the safety of others, the Writing Center is open by reservation only.

Creative people have long been drawn to Door County's quality of life and scenic inspiration, and they have created a welcoming artistic community that you will find supportive and stimulating. Door County is a narrow finger of a peninsula with Lake Michigan along its eastern shore and the waters of Green Bay along the west. It’s a magical place with 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks, eleven lighthouses, and miles of scenic roadways traveling through a countryside filled with orchards, old barns, wildflower meadows, and a string of small villages.

Enjoy Beautiful Door County
Come to write but also to wander the beaches, visit neighboring islands, hike a wooded trail, bike, sail, kayak, or snowshoe. Summer and fall are peak times for visitors, but the "off-season" is spectacular too. Visit the Door County Visitor Bureau website for information about state parks, dining, shopping, galleries, equipment rentals, and so much more.
