Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve represents one of the last stretches of undeveloped bluff land along the Lake Michigan shoreline, from Mequon up to Port Washington.  Over 1/2 mile of 90 to 100 foot bluffs look out onto Lake Michigan, offering tremendous viewing opportunities for residents and visitors.


Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve is also adjacent to a 44-acre wetland complex owned by USFWS for enhancing populations of migratory birds and other wildlife.
