“Fun.”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The drive up the cliff was exciting. The view from the top would have been better if it wasn't raining, but it was cool going to Hixon Forest later and looking across and saying, "Wow, we were over there before!"

“A must see on La Crosse.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful and interesting. You can park at bottom and walk or drive up to sight. The walk was not too steep. Park is very well maintained and has restrooms. Highly recommend visitors read the history, very interesting.

“Beautiful fall afternoon”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Although it was September, we enjoyed the bluff with temperatures around 80 degrees. Beautiful sunny day with a light breeze. The view is spectacular and we also enjoy when we visit La Crosse.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The view from up there is beautiful...........the river bluffs and the Mississippi River on the horizon and the city below. There's a two level overlook with a shelter on top as well as clean bathrooms.

“Grandad Bluff - what a view!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Amazing view from the top of the Bluff of Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota overlooking the Mississippi River. The drive up is a treat as well - if you have a sporty little car, you'll enjoy the switchbacks!
