  • Great place to view the city in summer and fall and ski in Winter. Pricing is not cheap to ski but where is it? Not much offered but a fun outing at the least.  more »

  • Spectacular views! My wife and I really enjoyed the hiking trails. The drive up to the park and back down was fun also since the park is located a ski hill.
  • All an uphill walk, but going in the middle of summer was the beat idea ever. Everything f was lush and green, got to see some tadpoles and friendly birds up in the quarry. Beautiful sky shots as well as rock formations and forests!
  • I love taking my boys here in the summer. Lots of very beautiful trails to walk. You can see all of Wausau from the observation tower and my kids love all of the rocks to climb on. Exploring all the trails with my family will be memories I will cherish for the rest of my life.
  • A really fun winter experience in Wasau Wisconsin. We came to ski and got to see some of the summer amenities as well.
  • Great place to hike, picnic, and enjoy nature. Nice trails and lookout tower. Picturesque views all around too be enjoyed with every season.
