This is a must see location. You can see the flag flying from areas all over Lacrosse. It is not a steep climb but a gradual ascent.

When you make it to the top, you can walk over to the edge, and look out over the state of Wisconsin, and into Minnesota, and on a clear day even Iowa. Pretty cool.

Beautiful view of La Crosse and the rivers. Easy drive to get up to it. Historical markers tell you all about the bluff. Easy to walk around, handicapped accessible.

Great view from the top of a mountain. Getting to the top on the curvy road is half the fun. Once you get to the top there is a paved parking lot, modern restrooms, and a great park.

It is accessible by car. There is a parking lot and a short, easy walk to the overlook. There are also trails from there for those who want to explore further.
