Sandstone Scenic Highway Road Trip

View on Map
44.1 miles: 0 hours, 37 minutes
Sandstone Scenic Highway is speckled with dairy farms that lead to Wisconsin River shores. The star attraction is the Wisconsin Dells; sandstone cliffs and formations tower above the wide Wisconsin River, creating valleys, or dells, where the dark, rushing waters meet slab-like rocks. On shore, myriad ferns and plant life flourish, including the rare fragrant fern.

The dual-signed interstate (I-90/I-94) and the Wisconsin River are travel companions on this journey. Sandstone formations and striated cliffs carved by the deep sapphire waterway in the Wisconsin Dells inspire photographers and nature lovers, as do hemlock trees and swallows’ nests perched on the 100-foot cliffs. Take a riverboat tour or splash around in about a dozen waterparks.
