Maiden Rock Bluff overlooks Lake Pepin and is one of Wisconsin's premiere limestone cliff faces high above the Mississippi River. Extending for nearly a mile, the 400-foot-high bluff is home to nesting Peregrine Falcons; one of only six bluffs on the Mississippi River where the falcons successfully nest. Hairbell, slender lip fern and many other cliff dwelling plants grow here along with 250-year-old red cedars. The open cliff and adjacent dry prairie provide habitat for rare prairie plants. The rocky bluff provides hunting perches and habitat for other raptors including Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures.
