Show off your selfie skills! Find a selfie stand located on the Pothole Trail with a view of the Dalles of the St. Croix River. Stop for a fun photo and then share it with us on Instagram using #ScenicWisconsin.
A steep-sided gorge called the "Dalles of the St. Croix" is the scenic focus of Wisconsin's oldest state park. The park's Ice Age Interpretive Center features a 20-minute film, photographs, murals and other information about the great glaciers. Three state natural areas are contained within the park's 1,400 acres protecting unique glacial features and plant communities. Habitat types include upland and lowland forest, and bedrock glade. The park contains numerous wetland areas and encircles Lake O' the Dalles. Winter Recreation Trails are multi-use trails and are open to snowshoeing, hiking, pets and cross country skiing. Snowshoers, hikers and pets are not allowed on the Skyline Trail when groomed.
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.
