Park-like river walk. It stops at end of park at hill to neighborhood, but should extend somewhere better so you don't have to walk through the neighborhood - would rather not.

We love taking walks here. The trail is paved and easy, the scenery is serene and peaceful. We occasionally see deer, cranes, heron and even elephants as we pass by circus world.

We enjoyed this short walk overlooking the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin Dells. Nice and quiet this early in the spring. Bonus is the Riverwalk Bar with wonderful cheese curds and beer.

There is an upper and lower walk. Very relaxing stroll along the Baraboo River. There is tons of wildlife and if you are quiet you might get to meet a few deer or geese or even a fox 🦊

We parked at the park and took a nice stroll along the river. Very wide blacktop walkway with tons of benches. The river is just beautiful here.

The Riverwalk is not lighted, but the central area is fairly light with nearby city lights, otherwise unless a full moon, it is not lit. Hours are park hours, 7am to 9 pm generally.
