 The Hike:

We will hike ~2 mi along the IAT through the Steenbock Preserve, taking in views of Lake Wisconsin. After ~1 mi on a connecting road, we arrive at the Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area. Rising 1,234 ft above sea level, Gibraltar Rock is a flat-topped butte with 200 foot sheer cliffs offering spectacular panoramic views of the Wisconsin River valley and Lake Wisconsin.


This leisurely-paced hike is approximately 5.6 miles long (with shorter options). We will have lunch after hiking 1.3 mi up to the top of Gibraltar Rock. Bring water and lunch. Dress for the weather. Hiking poles will be helpful. This hike will only be canceled if weather or conditions are unsafe. All ages and abilities are welcome. Ages 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


We will meet at the Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area parking lot. We will leave some vehicles there and carpool to the Merrimac Ferry Wayside on Hwy 113.
