Need to Know

If you leave the parking lot to the left you'll begin with a path of elevation and then work your way down the three levels of the bluff. There is a picnic area on the far right that sits next to some backwaters that can provide for some wildlife viewing.

Description

The Horseshoe Bluff Trail is a loop that begins and ends at a parking area. The name comes from the horseshoe shaped opening in the bluffs that allow you to run through and explore three levels. The views on the trail take on a drastic change depending on the season. There is lush coverage of tress surrounding the bluffs in the summer and fall. In the late fall, winter, and early spring you can see more of the rock formations in the bluffs and views of the Mississippi River.
