Wisconsin’s Natural Wonders – Part Two: Cave of the Mounds
Posted on: 8/13/2011
Nature lovers, rejoice! Wisconsin’s Seven Natural Wonders are truly one (or should we say, 7) of a kind. So it comes as no surprise that they are the setting for some of the best outdoor recreation in the nation. We chose one of our favorite Wisconsin Wonders, Devil’s Lake, to kick off a three-part series on these must-see destinations.
Devil’s Lake State Park is a Wisconsin treasure. It’s the most visited state park in Wisconsin and this year is its 100th anniversary. Go to camp. Go to hike. Go to swim. Go to rock climb. Bottom line… just go!
The park is a quick drive from Wisconsin Dells. Visitors can enjoy the 360-acre spring-fed lake surrounded by 500-foot bluffs and 30 miles of trails. Scientists believe the bluffs were formed 1.6 billion years ago, making them one of the most ancient rock outcrops in North America.
The surplus of trails guarantees a good time to hikers of all experience levels. So whether you’re a novice hiker or a veteran back-packer, have no fear, there’s a trail waiting for you. If you’re looking for must-see spots, hike the east bluff to see Balance Rock and Devil’s Doorway. (Tip: Both destinations are full of great photo opps, so don’t forget to snap a pic!)
Curious what the next Wisconsin Natural Wonder will be? Here’s a hint: No matter what time of year, this once hidden place is ALWAYS a cool 50 degrees.
