The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Wisconsin Everyone Should Take At Least Once

Wisconsin isn’t much known for mountains, but thanks to a glacial episode actually named after the state, we’ve got some amazing cliffs, valleys and gorges carved out in our terrain.

You may be used to heading to the Wisconsin Dells for waterparks and outlet shopping, but they are actually part of the Wisconsin State Natural Area. The Dells – actually from the French word for narrow – are a five-mile gorge on the Wisconsin River.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have any of you been to Witch’s Gulch? Many folks say it’s the highlight of a Dells boat trip.
