“one of the last stretches of undeveloped bluff land”

Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve represents one of the last stretches of undeveloped bluff land along the Lake Michigan shoreline, from Mequon up to Port Washington.  Over 1/2 mile of 90 to 100 foot bluffs look out onto Lake Michigan, offering tremendous viewing opportunities for residents and visitors. This park  offers tremendous views.  Stroll across bridges over the gorge or down the gorge stairways to walk along the Lake Mighican shoreline.  This 73 acre park offers plenty of hiking trails, boardwalks through the wetlands, picnic areas, scenic views, and restrooms.

Fun spot to stop and hike. Some boardwalk trails. Other trails are well taken care of and pretty wide. All lead to awesome views of Lake Michigan from 100 feet+.

We went when it was rather foggy out but it didn't take away from the beauty of this place. The preserve was free so you don't need any pass to get in like other state parks and such. It was warm and the walks were nice. The bugs weren't terrible. Definitely great for a long walk or run! Plan on going here again to catch the sunrise.

Great place to do a little bird watching or just an easy hike. Good place for the kids to look for fossils on the beach too.
