Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2014


Stopped here after hiking Timms Hill earlier in the day. We hiked to the summit and then hiked all around the park. Trails were well maintained.

For all practical purposes a drive-up. Winds were gusting at 30+ mph which made it fun on the observation tower.

Parked in summit lot because I could not find yellow trail head up - went down on yellow to trail head and back up on yellow/gray/blue to the wonderful summit finish, This mountain deserved a full hike. Beautiful woods and rocky outcrops.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2010


I visited Rib Mtn in June 2010 to get ready for Uncompahgre. It was a great day! I hiked up & down it a bunch of times. I liked the ski slope best because it was the steepest, but the wooded trails were great too. Rib Mtn was exactly the uphill workout I was looking for. I only wish it was located in the Chicago area. I would be there all the time!

From Sturgeon Bay to Eau Claire, this was a great place to stop and stretch the legs.

Visited the top while exploring the back roads of northern Wisconsin during our time in Appleton. It was chilly but there wasn't snow on the ground yet.

Can't remember exactly when I climbed it but I remember enjoying the brief scramble up to the highest spot. Great view down to Wausau from up here. Been here a number of times.

Climbed this with my wife. She decided not to climb to the true summit although she gave it a shot. The rock is smooth and slick when compared to much of the rock you find in Colorado. Would be much more difficult if it were wet or icy.

Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2007


Parked near the Rib Mountain Golf Course and hiked straight up the ski hill to the highpoint with my wife, and friends Ed, Martha, and some others who were attending the Highpointers Convention. Climbed Timms Hill and Pearson Hill the same day.

Climbed it many times in the past to train for Rainier and Whitney.

weeds19Road Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2005


The family took a long road trip to the north woods of Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. Along the way we camped at Rib Mtn State Park and did a little bit of hiking. Two out of three climbed the quartzite outcropping. The only one who didn't make it was my 3 mos old son, he'll have to come back if he wants to claim this county highpoint!
