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. Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off limits to pets. Visit our website for more details.
