Fonferek's Glen Falls
|Photos by Terri Prepelka
Just south of Green Bay, near the town of Ledgeview, Fonferek's Glen marks the beginning of Wisconsin's northeast waterfall country. Heading northward toward Lake Superior, a large collection of cascades can keep waterfall fans busy for days. This Brown County park is located in a rural area, mostly used today as farmland. Bower Creek has managed to break through the upper layers of Silurian dolomite, easily eroding away the soft under-layers of cherty dolomite. Here at the falls area a short section of fence marks the overlook, but for the most part you can walk up to the edge of the cliff face. Steep drop-offs and a deep gorge may catch first time visitors by surprise.
