There’s No Better Time To Visit This Stunning Wisconsin Gorge Than Now

Wisconsin has a rich geological history. Moving and melting glaciers created craggy paths and areas that were once large seas are now fascinating geological formations.

Devil’s Lake and the Wisconsin Dells are two places many visitors go to view the sandstone cliffs and other formations, but the best place to see the layers of rock and sand that have built up for billions of years is in Rock Springs.

Abelman’s Gorge is a state natural area in Rock Springs, west of Baraboo. Until recently, the area had no paths and wasn’t easily accessible.
