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.

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

This park offers limitless trails and beautiful views for anyone. If you enjoy hiking, start at McGregor Parking and enjoy the hike up. There are several different trails to venture on and each one has it's own unique perspective. The views during the fall were amazing as the leaves are changing colors. If you can't hike but want to enjoy... More

We stopped at both this park and Wyalusing S.P. in WI. We liked this one better. Enjoyed the views, forest trails and a nice picnic. No entrance fee.
