We had a great time hiking up this bluff! They have a few trails you can take to get to the top, and a little informational post at the beginning telling you which trails are easiest/hardest, to help you decide which one to take. My husband and I took the North Trail on the way up, which is considered the hard/advanced trail. While there were some slippery spots and narrow areas, if you're an adult with any hiking experience, you can probably handle it (not sure I'd take the same trail on the way down though - that would definitely be for the more advanced!). If you like nature and hiking through forestry, it's a beautiful hike. The North Trail also winds past some lime quarries, which are really neat to wander around. The North Trail is on the river side, so it's a gorgeous site to see the Mississippi in spots where the trees aren't too thick. Once you get to the top, there's a large grassy area with a great view of Red Wing and the river. On the way down, we took the South Trail, which was easier but still fun. Highly recommended!
