Spend a few hours or a full day exploring everything “The Ledge” has to offer!
Whether you’re into geotourism or you just want to see a world-famous geologic feature first-hand, Ledgeview is likely near the top of your “must visit” list. Here, you can get up close and personal with a large section of the Niagara Escarpment, a 400 million-year-old geologic foundation that stretches for nearly 1,000 miles across the Great Lakes region. In Wisconsin, the Niagara Escarpment is referred to as “The Ledge” which is where Ledgeview gets its name!

FONFEREK'S GLEN CONSERVANCY AREA
In Ledgeview, you will find one of Greater Green Bay’s most stunning destinations: Fonferek's Glen Conservancy Area. You could spend hours here enjoying the massive 75-acre county park and all of its magnificent views. This geological gem is part of the Niagara Escarpment and it features a 30-foot waterfall, dolomite cliffs, and a gorgeous stone archway, perfect for a picnic or photo backdrop. Just a heads up: the waterfall does typically dry out during mid-summer and drought periods so plan accordingly.
If you’re a hunter, good news! Deer bow hunting is permitted at Fonferek's Glen in open areas during specified times and dates with a permit. You can contact the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for up-to-date information and to find out how to obtain a permit.
FRIDAY FISH FRY
You simply can’t come to Ledgeview without enjoying a Friday Fish Fry at Graystone Ale House. Choose from their Ale House Cod, Butterflied Lake Perch, or Grilled Canadian Walleye. For lighter appetites, try the Walleye Sandwich or Clam Chowder.
If you want a refreshing beverage with your meal, you’re in luck. Graystone’s massive bar contains 26 draft beer lines, and their beverage menu features nearly 100 bottled craft beers, a full wine list, hand muddled Old Fashioneds, and their famous Graystone Bloody Mary!
Also, we have a great insider tip for you: Graystone Ale House offers a bus shuttle for Lambeau Field home games! It only costs $7 each way (cash only) and it’s a great way to avoid parking hassles and get a safe ride to and from the game!

The Ledgeview Park
Each loop was designed for a different difficulty level, from the more casual rider to the seasoned bicyclist. So, grab your bike and try them out!
