Picnic on the Dells of the Eau Claire River

Picnic at the Dells of the Eau Claire RiverThere are plenty of scenic wonders across the state of Wisconsin.  One of the most beautiful reminders of our ancient and glacial past happens to be right here in the Wausau area. The historic Ice Age Trail is the only state trail designated as a “State Scenic Trail,” and segments of it happen to run through Central Wisconsin near Wausau. In total, the trail winds for 1,000 miles through Wisconsin, and travels the path of the state’s last continental glacier. As the glacier receded, it left behind some truly stunning geological wonders, which today have proven to be popular attractions.  One of our favorites are the Dells of the Eau Claire River, located in Eau Claire Park.  When you’re looking for a scenic afternoon hike, and maybe even a picnic, this gem should be at the top of your list.  Book your room at the romantic Stewart Inn Boutique Hotel, and come explore Wausau with us.
