    "This hike offers great views of the river and a nice but unofficial trail leads to the top of the bluff from the viewpoint. It is a quick and easy hike."

    "What a beautiful Primitive Place it is a lot of hiking trails right next to the Wisconsin River absolutely gorgeous but it's getting crowded with visitors"

    "Great out-of-the-way spot for a short hike with lovely views of the Wisconsin River and the river valley. Can see Sauk City to the northwest, and Blue Mounds State Park WAY to the south on a clear day. Area is closed for bald eagle nesting in the winter months."

    "A great walk rewarded with a fabulous view of the Wisconsin River. Take the less-walked path, too, to the top of Ferry Bluff for an even more dramatic scene."
