A quiet, deep valley and headland along a fabled Wisconsin river. This state-owned wildlife area, stretching from the banks of the Kickapoo River to the bluff tops, is a quiet spot that could stand a few more visitors. The setting, a quiet C-shaped valley, offers a pleasant sense of isolation due to the tall bluffs surrounding it. In the center of that C is a 300-foot-tall bluff, rounded by the Kickapoo River on three sides, that defines this hike. This hike’s route rotates around the base of this headland on two of its sides, past river bottom sloughs, steep forested slopes, and sandstone cliffs before crossing the top of the ridge on its return.
