Roche-A-Cri State Park, established in 1948, includes a 605-acre park area. Roche-A-Cri comes from French words meaning "crevice in the rock." The park has a 300-foot-high rock outcropping with Native American petroglyphs and pictographs. The park has 41 rustic campsites within a forest of large oaks and pines. Carter Creek in the park offers fishing opportunities. The stairway to the top of the bluff has been closed due to deteriorating lumber. Later in 2010 the DNR will seek bids for replacing the stairs, and $354,600 has been approved to complete the work. Park staff estimates it will be completed in August 2011.

Stairs are now replaced with deck boards(metal) very nice from the old wood ones. Hiking or snowshoeing are open all year. I would NOT climb the stairs if covered with ice or snow. there is one flight of stairs that has over thirty stairs with no break. Ice or snowcovered stairs makes this flight very dangerous. Please remember safety is always first.

great hike, the stairs offer a good challenge and the scenery on the way is amazing

Nice paths marked clearly. 303 steps to the top of Roche-a-Cri Mound ... well maintained steps with viewing platforms along the way. Mostly shaded trails. Had a few pesky gnats and mosquitoes but not enough to scare us away.

Great trail practicing for the big one. I will be back.

really nice, lots of fresh animal tracks. very cool

perfect for a family hike with kids of all ages.

Great park. The petraglyphs are a neat part of history. The view from the mound is stunning. You can see for miles in any direction.

I thought the trail was great. It is well maintained with restrooms and water along the trail. It is a 3.5 mile trail if you take the acorn trail. There are sections where you feel like you are in the deep woods. I would definitely recommend this for families with small kids.

Good exercise. 303 stairs to the top and other trails I have not been on. The stairs are metal and no longer wooden.

Use caution on the board walk and wooden stairs to to top of the bluff some of them were weak. The view is great and goes to the horizon most of the way around the top
