ADDRESS: 12050 Ellison Bluff Road, Ellison Bay, WI 54210
This park is 174-acres that offers one of the most breathtaking views in the County. A wooden walkway/observation deck leads safely to the edge of sheer, 100-foot limestone bluffs are a part of the Niagara Escarpment, formed through sediment deposited by glacial inland seas. White cedar, Canada yew, mountain maple, red pine, basswood, and red elderberry grow on the sheer face of the cliffs, anchoring their roots in small crevices with little soil. One cedar species was determined to be over 250 years old. For the more adventurous, an enclosed catwalk extends out over the bluff offering another perspective of the breathtaking surroundings. A shady picnic area and cool breezes off the water add to the park’s charm. Toilet facilities and parking are available. This park includes both improved, handicap trails as well as natural hiking trails. There is no access to the water from this park. Take Highway 42 north, make a left on Porcupine Bay Road and follow the signs to the second largest county park.
Recreation Opportunities: picnicking at the eastern end of the park, natural hiking trails, improved handicap trails
