A remote walk along the Wisconsin River at the base of tall bluffs. Berghum Bottoms, a remote stretch of river front land at the base of wooded bluffs, is one of those diamonds in the rough that a guidebook author hesitates to write up. What first caught my eye was the lack of a paved highway along the south side of the river, a rare situation in these parts.

Better yet, the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway owns 5 miles of shoreline here, as well as 1 mile inland, to the top of the bluffs and beyond. The quiet lane you drive in on is the only intrusion. When you get out of your vehicle you sense the isolation of this swath of north slope woodlands and floodplain forest.
