Exploring Gibraltar Rock
What is Gibraltar Rock?
Gibraltar Rock is a 200-foot cliff that overlooks the rural landscape of southern Wisconsin. Patched with fields and farms, this stunning, panoramic view is a beautiful spot to visit.
Sean and I spent a couple hours exploring the Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area the other day. After hiking to the top, we sat near the edge of the cliff, took in the view, and played 20 Questions while waiting for sunset.
After parking, we headed out on the trail!
Keep in mind: Both parking areas are fairly small and there are no restrooms available.
Before arriving, I was under the impression that there was only one rock to walk out on and see the view. However, there are actually numerous places to look out from!
Also, the rock ledges have no guard rails so make sure to be cautious and careful when exploring!
