  • A beautiful historic Park & the highest elevation in the State of WI at 1940' above sea level. Visitors can see fossilized examples of ancient sea floor from the cambrian sea at the top of the mountain. Be sure to go to the top of the observation tower and bring a camera you'll be able to see for miles in all directions. A must see piece of history!
  • Absolutely stunning views of the Wausau area. Trails were well-maintained and fairly well-marked. Easy to get in and out of, and lots of areas to park. My suggestion is to get out at the entrance, take a couple hours to walk the Gray Trail all the way around the peak, stopping frequently to take it all in.
