Stay on the trail

The first time I went, I was a little bored. So I scaled down the embankment down to the lake. If only I had stayed on the the trail. . .I have been back multiple times and stayed on the trail because the staircase offers some great scenery and I still get to the same place. 5/5 because it is family friendly.

Short but Sweet

Summer is obviously the best time to go; you can chill out in the pools of water below the waterfalls and really just relax the day away. However, if you are in the mood for moderate challenge, this is not your venue. You can see everything you'd like in under 3 hours. Add a few more spots on your destination by checking out Parfrey's Glen, Natural Bridge, Baxter's Hollow, or the obvious-Devil's Lake State Park.

Winter is Coming

If you are not afraid of the cold, and if you live in Wisconsin you probably aren't, Parfrey's Glen is a wonderful winter destination as well. I went in the middle of a snow storm once, I brought snowshoes but I only needed them until the path got rocky. This is also only a short drive away from Natural Bridge State Natural Area and Pewit's Nest, make your day worth it. P.S.- Saw some guys with RC trucks making tracks in the snow there, it was rad!
