Like its namesake in Europe, the site of this hike is a stunning enormous rock set amid breathtaking scenery, although here in Wisconsin the vistas are open countryside stretching to the horizon rather than Mediterranean waters. Don’t be fooled by the hike’s relatively short length. It is a workout for your legs and lungs, with a very steep climb that follows a path to the top of a high butte, then a winding walk along the edge of a sheer rock face. However, you will be rewarded with striking views of the Wisconsin River Valley. Rock climbing is not permitted; no restrooms or water are available at trailhead; area is open during hunting seasons; check with the trail contact for more details.
