Pewit’s Nest is a bit of a secret in our area. Pewit’s (sometimes known as “Peewee’s” nest) is another natural gorge similar to the more well known Parfrey’s Glen. Pewit’s is between 30 and 40 feet deep and the trails are not maintained. The walking trails take you over the deep gorge instead of through it. If you visit use extreme caution. There are no railings!

Pewit’s is located about 2 miles south west of Baraboo on Country W. (This is the road you must turn onto from Highway 12 to enter the Baraboo Wal-mart.) The Natural Area is open to the public from 6am to 8 pm.

Parking is now available on site for around 7 or 8 cars at a time. This makes visiting Pewit’s Nest much easier.
