Grandad Bluff

Grandad Bluff has become not only a destination point for thousands, but also a symbol of this great Coulee Region. La Crosse’s recent renovation (completed in April of 2012) showed the importance and grandeur of Grandad Bluff to all who visit! 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. The 600-ft high bluff overlooks the city of La Crosse. The view of the Mississippi River Valley includes the three states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. 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.

NOTE TO ALL MOTOR COACH COMPANIES: There is a weight limit on Bliss Road (the main road that takes you up to the bluff). No vehicles 5 tons or more are allowed. State HWY 33 and County Road F is NOW OPEN. The physical address of the bluff is 3020 Grandad Bluff Road, La Crosse, WI 54601. Thank you for helping us preserve this road!
