Go Rock Climbing or Hike the Bluffs of Red Wing

Even with the elevation gain and several sets of steps, this hike is worth the effort needed to reach the top of the 340-foot bluff.

It’s a pretty trail through a scattering of trees on the south side and, on the north side, a more thickly wooded, rocky trail wedged between the Mississippi and the towering bluff. Wildflowers that begin blooming in mid- to late April are sprinkled along the trail, creating a variety of color. The main highlight of this trail is to experience the view from the top, where miles of Wisconsin’s and Minnesota’s urban and rural countryside are visible with the backdrop of the beautiful Mississippi River.
