Vista from the top of Hanging Rock

Hanging Rock is a coral reef remnant formed millions of years ago. The Wabash is slowly undercutting the rock, giving it the appearance of “hanging” over the river – hence the name. Climb the eighty or so feet to the top for outstanding views of the river and surrounding land.
