Description Suggest change

Large bluff line with big sandstone boulders scattered about. Established problems are all over, but there is still lots to explore, and hard stuff to be done. Access is good, you can see some boulders from the road.

This is part of the Quincy Bluff State Natural Area.

Getting There Suggest change

East of 14th Ct in Adams Cty.

Rattlesnake Mound is not far off of HWY 13 north of Wis Dells. If driving north, turn left onto Edgewood Dr. and continue west for a couple miles. Turn right (north) on 14th Ct, and the bluffs are to your right. Park in the parking area where you see the rock at the saddle, and hike to boulders. Boulders are scattered near both sides of each bluff. Distances are close so makes the hiking easy.
