If you are just coming to town for the day, it is a quick drive up into the park to take in the view of the Mississippi River and bluffs. The city has added some wonderful picnic areas, shelters and fire circles. The 9 hole disc golf is played two directions for a total of 18 holes. Lots of hiking... More

There is a nice view from the park area, but I had hoped to see more of the river from our vantage point. It is worth the trip up the winding road, but I would not do it again.

Drive up to the top for a beautiful view of Redwing! They have a disc golf course up there too. Great place for a picnic.

My husband & I visited during our 20th wedding anniversary trip. The view of the great Mississippi River and Red Wing, Minnesota were amazing! We took a picnic lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

The entrance road up Sorin's Bluff is on 7th St., on the south side of Red Wing. It is a winding drive to the top of the Bluff which continues, circling the Bluff, offering good views, hiking and picnic areas. Sorin's Bluff offers the best scenic views of the city, Mississippi River and Barn Bluff (which also has beautiful views,... More

This was never called Soarin's Bluff growing up. It was always called Memorial Park. It's beautiful and quite. The drive up the hill has always scared me. Because the road is small. But don't let it stop you from seeing it.

The view was spectacular! I only wish I had been there a few weeks earlier to see the fall colors. Worth stopping for on any trip to Red Wing Minnesota!

Sorin's Bluff sits high above the city of Red Wing and has a view that allows you to see the city in it's vast expanse and to see the meandering Mississippi river's path through the city of Red Wing. The hardest part about getting to this park is finding it, as it has no direct route off highway 61. We/... More

This park had excellent views of the city. It was very clean overall. Many different trails to choose from. We would definitely stop here again. Dog friendly yet people clean up after them. Could spend hours here.
