A breathtaking view of the city of La Crosse. Very little walking...drive to the top and hang out in the nice park at the top.

We took a quick drive up to Grandad Bluff and took in the view of Lacrosse and the surrounding area from above. Neat scenic overlooks. I wouldn't miss this if I was coming to Lacrosse for a one-time visit.

Drive takes you to the top. Walk short distance to see the entire city of Lacrosse. A perfect looking city. Very colorful in the fall through spring seasons with views of college, river, city and hills afar.

Granddad's Bluff is a nice park on top of the bluffs. A lot of people bring guests here or just take a little time to check out our beautiful area from a different point of view.

I loved visiting Alpine Inn and looking out over La Crosse on the front of the bluff. It was very cold, but very worth it! My toes were numb!

What a beautiful area ! La Crosse is amazing! Especially from this vantage point. A great way to get out in nature, and to really get to know what the landscape is like.

Definitely worth the visit. The drive up to it is windy and cool to see all the houses and roads below as you travel up. The view is spectacular once you do reach the top.
