If you have an hour or two on a nice summer day, this glen makes a nice destination for an easy hike.

“Great Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Great short hike. So many great formations inside the glen makes it well worth the trip. The entrance of the trail ties into the Ice Age Trail, so you could make a day's hike out of it. A must-stop if you are coming up the to Baraboo/Devil's Lake area.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Do be sure to stop at Parfrey's Glen when in the Baraboo area. This is a hike that you'll need sturdy shoes/boots for as there will be some scrambling to get to the end of the trail. Destructive floods in 2008 and 2009 wiped out the boardwalks, so leave your flip-flops in the car. This is a beautiful gorge and a must-see.
