    "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."

    "Great location for panoramic vistas of the Wisconsin river. Give yourself plenty of time to work up the steep trail. Closed during November to the end of March to protect roosting eagles. "

    "We have visited here numerous times. The hike to the top of the bluff is a steep one but very worth the view you get from there. An always changing opportunity to see wildlife and people exploring the river below."
