Black Hawk Unit: Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Professional Review and Guide
"The woods are thick, the prairies are full of flowers, and the overlooks show the hilly landscape of the Wisconsin River valley. A spot so beautiful also witnessed a sad bit of history. Black Hawk, a Sauk warrior, led 60 warriors against 700 militia at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. Look out over the Wisconsin River valley from several scenic overlooks as you hike through restored prairies and rich forests with ravines. This is the land where warrior Black Hawk once turned to face the pursuing U.S. Army and militia to buy his people time to escape across the river."
