Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area



04/01 - 10/31

Rising 200 feet above the surrounding landscape, Gibraltar Rock is a flat-topped butte, an outlier of the Magnesian escarpment. With a thin Platteville-Galena dolomite cap over St. Peter sandstone, the butte offers panoramic views of the Wisconsin River Valley and Lake Wisconsin. From Lodi, go north on State Highway 133 four miles, then west on County V one mile, then south on Gibraltar Rock Road 0.2 mile to a parking area and gated access lane. Walk south up the steep an winding lane 0.5 mile to the bluff top.

    "Great place to escape the urban jungle and get close to nature. If you're lucky - you'll see hawks soaring overhead."

    "A perfect little park with a great (albeit short) section of the Ice Age trail. It's only and out and back trail, but you can do about 1.7 miles from one parking lot to the other (so a short 3.4 miles r/t if you choose). Great, huge pines, lovely cliffs and overlooks with gnarled cedars, pretty prairie and great sunsets. Get here early for a spot to watch the sunset. Great place to just be."
