At the east end of Main Street in downtown LaCrosse, Grandad Bluff is only a quick ten minute drive up the coulee. There you will see panoramic views of the city and of the Mississippi River. A picnic shelter, hiking trails and a restroom are available. There is no entrance fee and parking is free. The gate closes at 10:30 pm. Your visit to the area won’t be complete until you check out the amazing views!

very interesting location to watch the summer sunset. the drive can be "exciting" for younger/older drivers and the parking is limited but the view is worth the effort.

The trip is simple, drive up the NOT so winding road to the top of the bluff. Walk up a short incline on the path way and experience breathtaking views from atop the bluff.

Trails could be a little better marked, but overall, a very pleasant hiking experience on a warm Saturday afternoon.

Easy to get to with great view of surrounding area. Only drawback were the very annoying knats that are present in great numbers. Recommend a visit
