Snowshoe/Hike into Fern Dell Gorge

680 days old

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 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. This adventure will take you into Fern Dell Gorge State Natural Area where the beautiful Sandstone rock cliffs hold amazing ice sheets, conditions permitting.  So bring your camera along with your snowshoes, cleats and walking sticks. Due to limited parking we will carpool from the park office. 
REGISTRATION REQUIRED due to limited space in the gorge. 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
