Door County has a great variety of State Parks that offer a number of fun outdoor activities. They vary in landscapes and offer nature centers full of information pertaining to the parks. There are also great nature preserves on the Door Peninsula that are often overlooked. The Ridges Sanctuary is one of these preserves.
The Ridges offer 5 miles of hiking trails in a beautiful setting. Just the other day I made it out on a hike there and could not believe it had taken me so long to get out there. It was a very relaxing trip and also very interesting. The land is unique and has swales that look like small rivers along with varying terrain.
The Ridges is a great year round non-profit organization with group outings, a fun nature center and events for the whole family. Make sure to take the time to check out this great place next time you’re in Door County! Just by visiting these preserves you are helping to keep the Door Peninsula the way it is.
High Point Inn is a short drive to all these great natural markers, and they are open year round! Come join us for hiking, biking, skiing or snowshoeing!
