We really enjoy the Paint Rock trail. Check Allamakee County parks for trail maps. Access road is across from Nobles Island, just south of Harpers Ferry.
The trail is wide and stable, right into the heart of the Driftless hills and valleys and river bluffs.
There's spectacular views at the top, and 200+ year-old white oaks, a rare thing in these woods, to enjoy and ponder upon.
Trail is not too steep. There are also less conspicuous effigy mounds at the top. The trail also takes you through a great-smelling, tall pine grove planted by CCC crews in the 30s.
Bring bug spray and water and your camera. Take your time and enjoy a real gem of a trail.
