This was a perfect stop on our way up to Wabasha's Eagle Center. A quick left off RT-61 and through some windy roads through neighborhoods and five minutes later you are in the parking lot. No cost and no attendance. it is not a big area, so do not give up when driving through the residental areas.

Once you park you have to walk to the overlooking points. It is about 10 yards to the first smaller overlook to the east, then another 30 yards to the main overlook which is amazing!

There is also a hike trail down if you choose to utilize it.

Overall glad we stopped and only took 5 min up and 5 min back, off the main route.

Garvin Heights provides a great view of the city, the river and the lake. It's an easy drive and a scenic overlook.

The host was very pleasant. I think his demeanor made the wines taste even better. Mostly I was surprised that I -- a red wine person -- loved a couple of the whites well enough to buy them
