The Driftless Area is a region in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois, of the American region escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys, and karst geology characterized by spring-fed.

The geographic position of Illinois and Wisconsin makes them unique in the glacial history of North America, because glacial lobes from both east and west of Hudson Bay, Canada, extensively invaded them and attained the southernmost limit of continental glaciation in the northern hemisphere (Fig.

The Driftless Area or Paleozoic Plateau is a region in the American Midwest noted mainly for its deeply carved river valleys.
