  Cox Hollow Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 43.01424   Longitude: -90.10668
Cox Hollow Spillway is also in Governor Dodge State Park which is located about 4 miles north of Dodgeville on Route 23.  A map available at the entrance to the park will show you how to get to the Cox Hollow Lake area where there is a large parking lot, concession area and rest rooms.  A short paved walkway just south of the concession area will take you to the 12 foot spillway viewpoint which is just upstream from the walkway bridge.  Be aware that rattlesnakes have been seen (although rare) in Governor Dodge State Park, so watch carefully where you walk.

Enee Rapids is also in Governor Dodge State Park.  A map available at the entrance to the park will show you how to get to Enee Point where there is a large parking lot and rest rooms.  Just south of the parking lot is a wooden bridge built over a small stream... the picture at left was taken of the stream under the bridge.  Love the sound of the trickling water.  Be aware that rattlesnakes have been seen (although rare) in Governor Dodge State Park, so watch carefully where you walk.

Lower Taliesin Lake Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 43.14186   Longitude: -90.06969
This spillway is just SW of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center.  From Spring Green go south 2.6 miles on Route 23, just after crossing the Wisconsin River into Iowa County turn right on County Road C... in 0.33 miles you will see the spillway on your left.  The road into the spillway area is private so park along County Road C (or the entrance to the private road) and walk closer to view the site.  A beautiful spillway/waterfall especially when the sun hits it right.  Some people call this a waterfall and some a spillway... and we do not know why it's called Lower Taliesin Lake (we have been unable to find an "Upper").

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
