Snowshoe/Hike into Fern Dell Gorge

8 days old

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Activities: Hike, Outdoor activity, Snowshoeing
Location: Mirror Lake SP

Marty is back to guide a fun winter hike into the Fern Dell Gorge to see the ice sheets! Meet him at the park office at 10 a.m. for carpooling. The hike will be about 90 minutes of adventure hiking through the woods and into the gorge. Walking sticks and snowshoes are recommended but not required. Bring your cameras to capture some beautiful pictures of the colored ice!
Due to limited space in the gorge, please RSVP to the park office (608-254-2333) to sign up for the hike.


Mirror Lake SP information

This park is named for its centerpiece, a lake which often is so Locationcalm that not a ripple marks its surface. The lake reflects a wooded shoreline with cliffs up to 50 feet high, a swimming beach, and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife. The park's 2,200 acres includes several picnic areas, wooded campsites, summer rentals, and a cabin for people with disabilities.

Mailing Address: E10320 Fern Dell Rd., Baraboo, Wisconsin 53913
