Stand above the Mississippi River Valley and see for miles. If you're lucky you might be able to see a storm roll in.
Amazing views of a beautiful city can be seen from Barn Bluff. The best view is on the east side, which overlooks the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin. Also, there are far less people that go there, due to the extra amount of walking. But, totally worth it!
My husband and I spent a night in Red Wing recently. We decided to visit Barn Bluff. As others have mentioned, it is a little tricky to get to.

As we were stating the climb up the steps, we encountered a group of very fit teens. They said it took them 1/2 hour to make the climb... but they could not agree on the number of steps. Made the climb, and what a view! Grabbed some geocaches too.
I have hiked here numerous times. It is a short and fairly easy hike, with a couple of different options for trails. Most people of all abilities could make this trek.

Barn's Bluff is a not to miss site in Red Wing, MN. I recommend the South Trail. This way is moderate to easy. The North Trail is difficult with some very narrow places in the path. There are also several technical rock climbing routes in the old quarry.
Great hike if you want to get so excercise. Mostly stairs. Nice drop if you wander off the path. Not good if you don't like heights.Great view!
