Black River State Forest
68,000 acres of pine and oak forest with two forks of the Black River and high sandstone abutments. Permit required for backpacking. Hike, bike and ski. How about island hopping on a mountain bike? The 300-foot-high glacial mounds strung out like a seven-mile-long necklace in the Black River State Forest seem like islands in a vast ocean of trees. From scenic overlooks on their peaks, you can look to the northeast where 10,000 years ago the bottled-up glacial meltwater of Lake Wisconsin once covered 1,800 square miles.
Hours of Operation
From the intersection of I-94 and Cty. O in Millston, travel east on Cty. O into the southern part of the forest, then turn north to Dike 17 on N. Settlement Road. From Black River Falls, Hwys. 54, 27 or 12 can take you north or south into the property.
