At the end of the Door County peninsula, rugged limestone bluffs stand bravely against the relentless wind and waves. They are part of a massive geologic feature that’s hiding in plain sight – the Niagara Escarpment. You can experience this incredible Wisconsin landscape via Port des Morts Park in Gills Rock. Just park your car, head down to the beach and prepare to be amazed. Here’s what’s waiting for you.

I really love this part of northern Door County – its truly amazing and worth a visit in any season. It’s less well known than other areas of the county, like Cave Point – so, on many days there’s a good chance you’ll have this incredible Wisconsin landscape all to yourself. Use caution on the bluffs and near the water, especially during the winter months. For park hours and other information about northern Door County parkland, visit the Town of Liberty Grove’s parks web page and get all your hiking and beach walking supplies at REI.
