One of the best ways to explore outdoors this Winter is snowshoeing at Parfrey’s Glen Nature Area in Wisconsin—it’s located just east of Devil’s Lake State Park but technically lies within the boundaries of this popular destination. This area has been impacted by flooding over the years, so it’s ever important for conservation efforts for visitors to stay on designated trails.
Parfrey’s Glen is Wisconsin’s first State Natural area and unquestionably the most visited state natural area outside Devils Lake State Park. There are many distinctive features to Parfrey’s Glen; the Glen itself reaches a depth of nearly 100 feet and encompasses a beautiful stream flowing through its floor. The walls are sandstone embedded with pebbles and boulders of quartzite—something you should see up close!
