There's a cool shelter here with a fireplace on either end that would be a great place for a party! The view is like flying low in a plane...straight down. No trails, so that's a bummer. Still enjoyed the short time we spent there.

The drive up was a treat but once you get out of your car, be prepared to be awed by the view. This is one stop you have to make when in La Crosse.

We went to the bluff about mid-afternoon. The temperature was in the mid-40s, very little wind, bright sun. The view from the top is wonderful. Quite a panorama. For best pictures, I'd recommend visiting in the morning, since the primary view is to the west. There are the standard coin-operated binoculars that probably gave a good look at the countryside, but we didn't use them. The drive up just takes a few minutes. The facilities at the top are clean and look pretty new. It's well worth the time to go up and take a look.

Glad we took the time to drive up to Grandad Bluff as we traveled through LaCrosse. The view is spectacular! We were there in late winter with a strong cold wind blowing, but it was still one of our favorite stops on a trip to Minnesota. A bonus was the bald eagle that flew by, just below the cliff edge.
