In central Wisconsin there is a county called Adams where Rabbit Rock wayside sits along Highway 13. This wayside is a fun place to make a stop especially if you have been driving for awhile. At the wayside there is a very nice rock that looks somewhat like a rabbit that is easy to climb.
As a child my family would stop at Rabbit Rock on our way to Northern Wisconsin. This was a very good stop for kids who had been sitting in the car for a long time. My brother and I use to take the hike and examine the rock as we did. My parents had a chance to catch their breath as we took a hike. The hike gave us a chance to stretch our legs and go for a short climb or hike up and around this fun rock.
Today Rabbit Rock is still a great place to stop for awhile. There are trails that wind around the rock that are easy to hike on. The trails seem to cut right into the rock as they wind up and down. Over the years I suppose the people who have hiked around Rabbit Rock have helped wear the trails into the rock.
Rabbit Rock may be an easy climb but it still can be dangerous so you need to be careful. When the rock is wet it can be slippery and when the rock is dry the sand can cause you to slide as you walk on it. Large cracks are interesting to look at but you can get caught up in them. And of course you can still fall off of the rock even though it is not too high as compared to most climbing rocks. It is a small hiking rock but a fun one. It is a good place for kids to get the idea of rock climbing.
Rabbit Rock wayside is a great place to stop for a picnic or a hike. Rabbit Rock is a free place to stop at and enjoy the view from on top of the rock. There is a parking lot and a restroom that are open to the public. You can only visit Rabbit Rock in the summer since it is closed during the winter being that the rock can be slippery with snow and ice making it unsafe for hiking on.
