Pewits Nest State Natural Area



04/01 - 10/31

The dominant feature of Pewits Nest is a 30-40 foot deep gorge formed during the retreat of the last glacier. From the intersection of US Highway 12 and County W in southwest Baraboo, go west and south on W for 1.5 miles to a small parking area south of the road.

    "Its really neat, parking is a bit tight though, but the main gorge is only about 50 yards up the trail."

    "A fun walk in the woods over a small gorge with short falls. Access to the falls is very limited, as you can only seem them from a short distance. Access paths are rough, but manageable. An enjoyable side trip."

    "Pewits nest is an amazing location to hike through, not the largest park but has spectacular sites! The water falls are gorgeous, during the winter you can walk into the canyon and see the caverns surrounding the river"

    "Great and easily accessed hike, summer or winter. Bring your swimming suit in the summer for some dangerous cliff diving."
