Lone Rock Professional Review and Guide
"Approach an isolated sandstone bluff through a secluded State Natural Area and climb to the top for some long views to the horizon. Lone Rock is an outing with a story line you will like. The walk in, through pleasant oak pine woods, is just long enough to build suspense. When the sandstone bluff finally comes into sight, there is a sense of reward, of compensation for curiosity and effort. The hidden route to the top, and the long views, add to that sentiment.
Most remarkable about those views, stretching across the forested flats and buttes of central Wisconsin, is that few things made by humans in sight. Bluffs and mounds in Black River State Forest, some 40 miles away, show on the northwest horizon. The route to Lone Rock is a marked snowmobile trail that makes for fast walking. From the trailhead, walk west past a gate on a wide grassy trail that was once a road. Just past the gate there is a split. An orange arrow points to the choice on the right, a lane going west. Ignore that arrow and take the choice on the left (southwest)."
