Savor breathtaking sights and distinctive flavors this fall on the Baraboo Area’s “Spirit Trail.”

As the home of Devil’s Lake State Park, Baraboo has long been a destination for hikers. But with new wineries and breweries popping up, it also has become an attraction for beverage connoisseurs. Why not enjoy both features of this special community, by walking down the ‘Spirit Trail’ and stopping for a sip whenever you get parched?

Next up on the Spirit Trail are stops in the downtown area. If you aren’t up for a lengthy hike uphill, arrange for a ride to the Maxwell-Potter Conservancy, where you can begin a journey on the Baraboo Riverwalk. The Riverwalk runs along the Baraboo River throughout the city limits. Start at Effinger Drive and walk west past Circus World, a state historic site located on the former winter quarters of the Ringling Bros. Circus. Right next door you’ll find Driftless Glen Distillery. Driftless Glen prides itself on a deep menu of craft cocktails made from award-winning spirits distilled on the premises. You can pair those cocktails with a gourmet lunch and or dinner that can be enjoyed in the dining room or on a patio overlooking the river.
