This is a great place to take hikes through prairies and woods. It was quite windy so we did not stay as long as we planned. There are many places to stop and have a picnic and enjoy the scenery.

It was a bit hot for hiking the day we visited and fortunately you can also drive to the top and park at various places to get out and admire the views of Red Wing and the great Mississippi River.

A must stop when visiting Red Wing, has great views of Red Wing and the Mississippi River. Fun Fact, the snowmobile and snow angel scenes of Grumpy Old Men was filmed in the park. Biking and hiking options.

There isn't a street address that I am aware of, but I asked directions when in Red Wing and it was easy to find. Worth checking out!
