Rabbit Rock

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

SE 1/4 NW 1/4 Sec 29, T19N, R6E, on State Route 13 in Big Flats, Adams County

A conspicuous landmark easily accessible from the wayside just to the south. Probably named because the two pinnacles look a bit like rabbit ears.

Sedimentary Features

Cross-bedding is conspicuous in the sandstone

Views from the Top

Better enjoy this while you can. Sooner or later someone will fall, argue that the state should have told him he could fall off a tall rock and get hurt, convince twelve morons to make him rich, and the outcrop will be closed

Looking south, Friendship Mound (left) and Roche a Cri (right) are conspicuous
Looking southeast, Minnie Rock, about two miles away, is visible. Minnie Rock is enclosed by private land and surrounded by woodland, so it is not easily visible or accessible.
