One of the most spectacular walks you can enjoy in Wisconsin isn’t the easiest to get to. To get to this stroll, you’ll first have to drive to the end of a long peninsula, take a ferry to an island and then take a second ferry to a second island. Still with us? Good, because some of the best places on earth are really special because they are not so easy to reach. Rock Island is one of those places and a walk here will take you past gorgeous rocky beaches to a lighthouse with an unforgettable view.
Get your hiking shoes and your camera ready – here’s what you can find on this spectacular lighthouse walk in Wisconsin.
The hike to the lighthouse will be a little over one mile, each way – for a longer walk you can follow the trail around the island. Learn more about Rock Island and this special lighthouse here. If you enjoy discovering Wisconsin’s historic lighthouses on foot, here’s one you should plan to visit – the trip out to the lighthouse is half the fun.
