“Great View”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I went in the middle of January and it was freezing. Still an awesome view, but I would suggest going in warmer weather!!

“what a view!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you have never been to la crosse, this scenic overview is awesome. Completely redone recently and now that bliss road is open very easy to get to.

“A Must see”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

If you enjoy scenic overlooks this is the is one you wont want to miss. Newly remodeled a nice stroll down to see the mississippi river and the surrounding La Crosse area. Great time to visit is during the fall with the fall colors.

“Worth the journey to the top”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We were here summer of 2012 and decided to drive up and check it out. It is a bit of a winding road but scenic. Once at the top we took our time checking out the scenery. There is not a whole lot to do up here other than take in true great views of the city and river- worth it!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

The Bluff is an amazing combination of nice scenery & clean, neat surroundings. The pavilion has 2 fireplaces in it. The restrooms were lovely w/a cedar shake roof.
I was a little leary about the Bluff view because I am afraid of heights. I am glad I did not let that deter me from going out onto the point. The railing was very sturdy (stainless steel).
If you have not been here, you are missing out on an amazing view.
