Chiseled out of the states far northern region is Rock Cut State Park in Winnebago County. Nearby are other "rocky" landmarks - the mighty Rock River and the place where wagons once forded it, Rockford. Its an area of rolling plains, interesting history and recreational variety. Two lakes set off the parks 3,092 acres. Pierce Lake, with 162 acres, is a retreat for people wanting to fish, ice fish or ice skate. A second 50-acre Olson Lake is especially for swimmers. Rounding out the parks recreational options are camping, hiking, horseback trails and cross-country skiing. Whatever the season, you can be sure theres quite a bit of activity going on at Rock Cut State Park.

I love walking around the lake! It is always a great view and opens up frequently to get a fresh view of everything. A great park. Looking forward to camping there!

A good scenic hike, there are a lot of opportunities to see wildlife. I would not say that it is moderately difficult if you do any intentional walking 2-3 times a week.

good trail, a little muddy.

The park is beautiful but the trails are lame. It's pretty much just a beaten' path that may or may not lead to a dead end. You will probably also get lost since there aren't any maps within the trail or directions of any kind. I have a great sense of direction and I still got lost.
