2 Miles Round Trip - 200 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area - Search Nearby - Added by Andy Merkel

One of Wisconsin's best kept secrets in the middle of the state. Drive 1 hour north of Madison to view these bluffs!

Gibraltar rock is approximately 1,200 feet above sea level, and has 200 ft. cliffs overlooking the Wisconsin River valley. This is a challenging hike uphill as you have to start at the parking lot from the bottom. The views are 100% worth it once you reach the top. Once you get up to the top, there are a few trails you can take along the bluffs that will ensure you get a great spot for sunset.

You will find many people picnicking, resting in hammocks, and taking in the sunset up here. Bring your camera, bring a snack, and enjoy the views!
