Baxter's Hollow State Natural Area



04/01 - 10/31

Baxter's Hollow features a scenic gorge cut through Baraboo quartzite by Otter Creek, a fast, clear, nearly undisturbed stream flowing over the large quartzite boulders. From the intersection of US Highway 12 and State Highway 78 in Sauk City, go west on Highway 12 for 7.6 miles, then west on County Highway C for 1.5 miles, then north on Stones Pocket Road for just over 2 miles to one of the parking areas along the road.

    "Great, secluded natural trail. Note: the trail is muddy in parts and overgrown in parts so bringing appropriate footwear and long sleeves is a good idea"
