A Spooky Hike Through Witches Gulch


The name "Dells" (as in Wisconsin Dells) comes from the French word "dalles" which refers to "rapids between the narrow walls of a canyon". The Wisconsin River State Natural Area is home to Witches Gulch, a slot-like canyon that is open to those traveling aboard one of the Upper Dells Boat Tours. A boardwalk pathway leads hikers from the waters of the Wisconsin River through the gorge. A snack and souvenir shop is available for those interested in making a purchase before a return hike to their docked boat.

Social Media Description

What have you heard about the Wisconsin Dells?

We knew that the Dells is often referred to as the water park capital of the world. But, we had also heard that it is a vacation destination for people of all ages. Since we are traveling through some of the north central states, this was the perfect time for us to check out what the Dells has to offer.

We chose an Upper Dells Boat Tour as our first excursion. The boat navigated through the rather narrow river past several unique sandstone formations. We also made stops at Witches Gulch (pictured) and Stand Rock where we exited the boat for some sightseeing on the land. Witches Gulch is a slot-like canyon formed through the years by the effects of wind and water. The narrow canyon is filled with ferns and has a slightly eerie feel - I can only imagine what a night time walk through the canyon would feel like!

What would be at the top of your list if you visited the Wisconsin Dells?
