Governor Dodge: Lost Canyon Trail

May 23, 2007 019

Another reason why Governor Dodge State Park is one of my favorite parks is because of The Lost Canyon Trail.  Rated as an advanced trail because of several steep grades and overall trail length of eight miles, this trail twists and winds through the park and Lost Canyon where you’ll find Stephens Falls.  During the Summer it will always be about ten degrees cooler here than anywhere else in the park.  If you’re not up to hiking the whole eight miles, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has built a paved wheelchair accessible trail that overlooks the falls, and has built a rock step trail down the side of the canyon so you can enjoy Stephens Falls.  The park itself is located north of Dodgeville, Wisconsin.  Another reason why this is one of my favorite parks is because Dodgeville has one of the few remaining A&W Root Beer stands left in Wisconsin.  It is the only fast food restaurant I’ll eat at.  For more information about Governor Dodge or other Wisconsin State Parks feel free to follow the link and browse the Wisconsin DNR’s website: http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/land/parks/specific/govdodge/
