Ledge View Nature Center is a 105-acre Calumet County park and environmental education center located just south of Chilton, WI.  The park is best known for its caves, but also contains woodland, dolomite ledges, open prairie and an inactive quarry. Hikers can enjoy 3 miles of trails, a 60-foot observation tower, an arboretum, and gardens with native wildflowers. Visitors can also view displays and interactive exhibits inside the nature center building.
