Who doesn’t love a good beach day? The sun, the fresh air, the calming waves, the maddening crowd…oh wait. We could definitely do without that last one! If you hike the Lion’s Den Trail in Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve in Wisconsin, you will reach a secluded beach that offers a hidden respite from the hordes of people traditionally found at the beach. The best part is, all it takes is an easy and quick hike to reach it!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
First of all, the hike itself is absolutely beautiful. Wandering through a gorgeous forest always feels magical and sublime.
The hike is considered easy, so the whole family can join. Or you can enjoy some solitude as you hike the trail alone.
Dogs are allowed on the trail, if you want to bring your four-legged friend, but they must be leashed.
The path will take you over several bridges and marshland.
You may even catch a glimpse of the water from the path!
Don’t forget to stop and snap some pictures of this truly photo-worthy hike along the way. These cute little purple flowers are adorable.
Watch out for sssssnakes! Hi there, little guy.
Finally, you can descend down, down, down…
The long wooden staircase, until you reach….
The beach! Stunning views of Lake Michigan and a charming, pebbled beach await you upon your descent.
Here you can enjoy the peace and quiet and be lulled by the breaking and cresting of the calming waves. You can collect rocks, explore the beach, or simply relax and bask in the tranquility.
We recommend taking this hike in the early morning hours if solitude is what you are after.
