TIMM'S HILL
Wisconsin's Highest
Natural Point
Elev. 1951.5 Ft.

The marker is located at the top of Timm's Hill in Timm's Hill County Park, Hill, Wisconsin 54459.

NOTE: The marker is easy to locate -- the park road is one-way and leads directly to the parking area to access the trial to the tower and the marker. BUT, the trail is very steep and a little treacherous if one is not in good physical condition.

Even Dexter was a little pooped at the end of the climb.

Check these guys out -- super cool and interesting!

The steepest part of the climb, at the very end,
with the tower visible between the trees.

Many places to stop and rest on the steel climb.

Looking down the path back to the parking lot.

A little treacherous, at points . . .


Cool boulder at the bottom of the trail.

The trail to the top of the hill is visible to the left of this kiosk.
