Great views any time of the year of the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers! Easy access, also great trails, some boardwalks. Close to the great little shops in McGregor, IA.

Hiking here is so easy. You hike on boardwalks with steps. We saw people of all ages hiking...kids, parents and grandparents. Great views and plenty of parking.

Great views of the river but they could cut out some dead timber to improve the views even more. Trails were well marked and very pretty.

This park sits atop the bluff named Pikes Peak. The picnic grounds are well groomed and the sights from the overlook are superior. You stand above the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers. Many trails lead to other overlooks and a substantial group of...More

of course you can drive to pikes peak, there is no "hiking" to get to the overlook, more of a 2 minute walk from the parking lot to the overlook.
