Do this if you are in the area!

We had a beautiful, warm day to do this, but it was worth the drive to the top. Nice restrooms and gorgeous view. Nice descriptions of history. If you just want the view (no hikes), don't stop until you get to the top.

Panoramic view, nice!

I have been up to this overlook many times over many years. It never disappoints. The walkways and guard rails are much safer now. The view of the city, river and bluffs is timeless. It's an easy drive , if you haven't been up there yet, go!

Best vantage point of LaCrosse and beyond
Mar 2021
We drove up on a sunny but very windy day. Appreciated the updated railings and safety measures! We were hoping to hike but most trails were closed, however, we noted that this is a great offering to those who can't hike or have a disability and want to see the views. One trail appeared to be open, was a combo of mountain biking and hikers. It was impressive packed gravel, and we wondered how the multi-use trail would work in busier times. We are mountain bikers and sometimes the combination of hikers and bikers can lead to accidents, especially with the switchbacks we could see before the leaves had grown in. Regardless, this is a really impressive place to visit, and on our clear day we were able to see a grand view of LaCrosse, the Mississippi, Iowa and Minnesota.

A Stunning View
Mar 2021
We started our tour of the Mississippi River Drive from La Cross and Grandad Bluff. Its elevation was surprising and unexpected, a clear day with a view for miles. Great information at the summit about how the land was protected etc. The kids all enjoyed the views, the information, but mostly the train we were able to see from end to end. Definitely worth the trip from La Crosse

Every time we go to LaCrosse, we come here, it’s a beautiful view of the city! You can park at the top or walk from a lower level parking area.

What a view!
Feb 2021
Drove up to top of the bluff three times during our visit so we could see the city and river in the morning (sun behind us), afternoon (sun starting to set), and evening (lights of the city). No one time beats the others, a great view anytime! Also enjoyed the trails nearby as they were nicely groomed for a winter walk. HIGHLY recommend.
