SnowshoeingGreat!

Fun snow shoe hike on the middle yellow trail. Well marked. Left from the top of the hill near the parking lot. Very quiet and well maintained trail.

RunningGreat!

Great trail for a winter run. Hills are a challenge! Signage isn’t bad on the trail but hard to find if you start at the top and could easily send you off in a direction you don’t want. This app was very helpful keeping me going in the direction I wanted to go.

Snow on the trees is amazing! Good temps to get the mini one out and try out his snowshoes.

Good woods trail. Pretty and quiet. Little to no traffic. Depending which way you go can be a steep walk back, but there’s benches to take breaks.

East end not as good as west trails. Just walk through the woods for most part. Colors were full peak so made it much more enjoyable.

HikingGreat!

I thought the length of this trail was perfect. The hike is fairly easy for most of it, it is only more challenging when going back uphill. The outlook area had great views but there aren’t many on the trail. Overall a good hike!

Love rib mountain has a such a pretty view. The trails are a little rocky at times but have a good view. I brought my dogs and they loved it. Cant wait to go again this fall.

HARD! extremely steep in certain areas. Also, the quarry pictures set for this trail are not accurate. If you want to see that, take the red or quarry trail

Pretty decent trail if you're looking for a day hike. Trails are well maintained and well marked. I think more experienced hikers would rate this as an easy trail.

HikingGreat!

Park at the bottom of main road into Rib Mountain State Parkand take the 1.8 mi path up the hill. It’s a paved trail and a good climb. When you get to the top get on the trail which winds down. Very nice hike.
