  Dutch Hollow Lake Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 43.60844   Longitude: -90.18001
This spillway is NW of downtown La Valle.  From the intersections of Routes 58 and 33 in downtown La Valle go 2 blocks north and turn left on Union Street (Union Street will turn into Thompson Road); travel 3/4 mile and turn left on Dutch Hollow Road; follow Dutch Hollow Road for 2.77 miles and turn left into the parking lot for the Lake.  As you enter the road to the parking lot notice the trail to your right... you need to walk the trail to find the spillway (the spillway is a 1/3 mile walk up the path and thru the woods to find the spillway).  Notice that the spillway is dry... water seldom flows over the spillway!  Notice the snow and ice... the lake was still froze over when I was there.

Not a very impressive rapids and you cannot get down to the rivers edge to get a good picture, but if in the area it's worth a look.

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.
