Rocky Arbor State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Walk along the former bed of the Wisconsin River and see where the glacial runoff and resulting river once dug deep into ancient sandstone, and then climb to the top of the ridge looking over it.

The trailhead is at the far end of the parking lot just past the park office. The trail follows along the edge of the old riverbed and then climbs to the top of the ridge for the return trip. The rock formations along the way make a lovely setting for a short hike, and the wildflowers and wildlife are cause to linger. The mosquitoes, however, enjoy the moist conditions and shelter from the wind, so be sure to prepare for them."
