Parfrey’s Glen – Wisconsin’s First Designated Natural Area


We have been exploring the many state natural areas and this one is quite interesting.  Parfrey’s Glen is quite beautiful, located in Merrimac, WI.  It starts out on a paved trail that soon becomes dirt and the woods more dense. It had been damaged by flooding in recent years but is still accessible.

we get deeper into the gorge, we are walking alongside a tall rock face that opens up to this beautiful scene.

What a beautiful hike!   If you are in the area, the beauty here is well worth the time to visit.
