It was below zero and snowing, roads closed and the park bare trees. Bundled up and walked anyway. Pretty and I see the attraction of the place. Would lime to come back in Spring or fall.

Although, we were in the park during the dead of winter, the park still holds some natural beauty. The falls were frozen and it was a very dreary day when we drove through the park but we enjoyed the scenery. We saw two deer and the cliffs were interesting. There are many lookout points for pictures.

A beautiful place to hike, sit, and relax. Great trails and beautiful rivers to explore. The town of Madison is a great little spot for lunch.

Clifty Falls is a great place to hike and enjoy nature. The Inn is clean and comfortable but nothing special, if fact, a bit pricey for what you get. Heating system is noisy and the showers in the older part of the building are hard to regulat

My husband and I visit Madison every year for a night or two in November or December but had never stayed at Clifty Falls so we decided to try their 2 nights for the cost of 1 special. We were very pleasantly surprised at just how nice the rooms are and how lovely the view is of the river and... More
