Waterfalls are a rarity in the south central a half of the state, with the preferred being a miniature fall atParfrey’s GleninSauk County, close to largest and top-visited Wisconsin state parkDevil’s Lake. But this lesser-known treasure is tucked away an hour south in one other of our largest state parks,Governor Dodge. Montello’s granite quarry is famously recognized for producing the materials of Grant’s Tomb in New York City, but today it’s the rather more serene web site of a park. Four waterfalls, once rapids of the Montello River that have been harnessed to energy equipment, spill over granite outcroppings into the now-flooded quarry, which is fenced for security causes. Each of these seven local-favorite falls, located in or near small Wisconsin towns, is easy to get to and doesn’t require a protracted hike or weekend dedication. Just drive up with the packed lunches prepared — you’ve obtained an outing the family will never forget.
