Grandad Bluff has become not only a destination point for thousands, but also a symbol of the Coulee Region. The 600-ft high bluff overlooks the city of La Crosse and the view of the Mississippi River Valley includes views across Wisconsin and into Minnesota and Iowa. Grandad Bluff offers roughly 5-miles of shared-use trails with access to neighborhoods on 29th St. and Ebner Coulee Rd. Offering family-friendly limestone trails, the top of Grandad’s is perfect for the whole family. 

Wisconsin Trails readers voted this “the most scenic view in the state”. The park features a shelter house, coin-operated binoculars, picnic areas and is the site of the annual Skyrocker`s New Year`s Eve Fireworks Show.

Grandad Bluff is a city park located by following Main Street east which becomes Bliss Road (small vehicle only) as you ascend the bluff. At the top, the entrance is found by turning right on Grandad Bluff Road.
