This was a nice hike. Our kids enjoyed it (keep a close eye on little ones at the top). Definitely opt for the forest trail instead of the paved path. Cool lookout views at the top and on some side trails along the way.

The trail is beautiful, but it also has a relatively high traffic. You won't find complete solice, but the views make it worth it.

Fun easy hike with great views! So many people take the paved path up, don't make that mistake, the beautiful well maintained hike through the woods is wonderful!

Start at the Merrimac ferry south shore parking lot (1). The trail head is marked by yellow blazes. After a brief segment between rail tracks and the road, the trail crosses the road and start climbing in ernest. Filtered view of Lake Wisconsin through trees. A winding trail through woods leads to Slack Rd parking lot (2). From here one has to do some road hiking on Slack Rd and County V to Gibraltar Rock park; fortunately the traffic is light. Once at Gibraltar Rock park lot (3), it's a longish hike to the cliffs with sweeping views of the rolling hills to the south. Continue the trail to the west parking lot (4). That's 4.6 miles one way. Backtrack.
