Rib Mountain park is the best. There are many hiking trails and activities. The rocks are beautiful. The quarry trail on the back side is simply stunning. This is a great park to visit.
I live near by, beautiful park. Nice hike up to the park. Excellent views from atop the lookout tower. Ski resort in the winter as well, best in the area. I would give this park 5 stars but they don't offer camping anymore. Amphitheater and good hiking. Nice place to have a wedding.
Beautiful park. Excellent hiking paths. The rock formations are very cool. The top of the observation tower offers a gorgeous view.

No matter the season there is something for everyone who loves the outdoors. Take a hike on the trails or climb the tower to breathe in a fantastic view for miles. You will need a state park pass to drive all the way to the top but you should have one anyhow to check out the rest of the parks in Wisconsin.
Amazing view over Wausau. I definitely recommend visiting in every season, it is quite beautiful and different in each season! If you don't mind heights, scale the wooden tower for a truly remarkable view.
