Experience the breathtaking beauty and fall colors at Wildcat Mountain State Park as it sits atop a bluff overlooking the winding Kickapoo River. With over 25 miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, this Wisconsin State Park offers plenty of opportunities to take in stunning scenery. The rugged and picturesque Driftless Region stands out as one of the most breathtaking areas in the state. The untouched valleys, winding rivers, and towering bluffs, sculpted by retreating glaciers many centuries ago, offer a perfect playground for adventurers seeking biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and more.
There are a few things not to miss at Wildcat Mountain State Park, including the Old Settler’s Trail, the Hemlock Nature Trail, and the Ice Cave Trail, all popular among hikers. For a unique adventure, visitors can also canoe portions of the Kickapoo River, the largest tributary of the Wisconsin River. You’ll also need to plan a stop at the observation point and picnic area overlooking the Kickapoo Valley to take in the stunning views of the Driftless Region, full of autumnal hues and bright fall colors. And, fun fact, the park is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year!
