It is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Highway 86, about midway between Ogema and Spirit and about 23 miles (37 km) west of Tomahawk.[4]

A public lookout tower is atop the hill. Visible to the southeast is Rib Mountain (elev. 1,924 ft, 586 m), 44 miles away by line of sight.[citation needed]

The 10-mile (16 km) Timms Hill Trail connects to the Ice Age Trail,[5] a National Scenic Trail stretching 1,200 miles (1,900 km) across glacial terrain in Wisconsin.
