Perrot (Pear-oh) has the best view of the Mississippi anywhere, but you'll have to work to get to it. The river is narrow here, only a half-mile wide and smack up against the bluffs. Yes, bluffs. To cover the long loop you'll have to climb more than 250 feet several times. For an easy roll take the Wilber loop. Nearby are the Great River State Trail, a rail bed route, and the interesting village of Trempealeau. Good food and an excellent series of summer concerts make the Trempealeau Hotel a popular spot. The Army Corps of Engineers lock and dam in town is a great place to watch river barge traffic, and that's no bluff. Has adaptive equipment available for people with mobility impairment including specialized kayaks. Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off limits to pets. Visit our website for more details.
