The view is amazing especially on a gorgeous fall day, but that is pretty much it. We tried to find the "waterfall" and it was just a dribble of water rushing down a rock. LOL

It has been 40 years since I've been there. Still beautiful. Clean park with a wide choice of walking path lengths.

We went on a fall foliage trip and stopped at Pikes Peak. It was beautiful. If we had known how nice it was we would have packed a picnic lunch. There was plenty of parking and it over looks the Mississippi.

Visited on a road-trip to see fall colors - this is a must stop place! Wonderful view overlooking the Mississippi valley. Nice clean park and facilities, along with wonderful walking trails. This park has free admission which is a bonus since most state parks require admission fees.

Having visited this attraction many, many times while in the area over the years I highly, highly recommend this spot where the Mississippi and the Wisconsin rivers meet. With an elevated viewpoint built above the merger point of the rivers. It is a relaxing spot to watch nature, hike the trail back to the waterfall, and watch the barge traffic... More

I was just at Pikes Peak last Sunday...great views of the Mississippi and trees in fall. Wonderful overlooks to the river and parts of Wisconsin. Well worth an afternoon for a picnic or a hike. Several waterfalls are in the park but with it being so dry, not much was flowing over the falls
