Willow River Hike

WISCONSIN STATE PARKS ARE FREE THIS WEEKEND!

 

This is such a great park to hike in and if it's hot, a dip in the Willow River Falls or the lake is certainly meant to refresh the soul and spirit.

 

For those interested please consider bringing a picnic lunch for after the hike. We can sit by the lake and soak our feet.

 

There are numerous trails in this park and some areas that are steep, so I would recommend good hiking shoes and maybe a hiking pole. There is always the option to just hike up to the falls and back, and that is a fairly flat and easy hike.

*** As always you DO NOT have to RSVP NO.  ***

 

DIRECTIONS TO WILLOW RIVER STATE PARK: take 94 east and stay on that until you see the brown sign indicating the exit to Willow River State Park. I believe it is exit #4. Take that exit and go north. Continue to follow the signs and the park will be on your left-hand side.

 

Drive all the way into the park to the parking lot down by the lake. We'll meet by the restrooms and concession building.

 

There is also an Art Fair there on Sunday. Dogs are welcome as long as they stay on a leash. Children are also welcome.

    An exceptional Minnesota late Spring day (and Wisconsin, too..!) - the Falls were spectacular - first time seeing the Willow River Falls, and I was not disappointed! Great group of enthusiastic hikers - made a great day even better sharing it with others. Followed up the hike by launching my kayak on the St. Croix at Hudson - a memorable day! Kayaking anyone...?
