Enjoy scenic views and sunsets from the highest point in Monroe County.

Starting at kiosk in parking lot, the trail climbs up the bluffs to Salt Lick Point, where you can catch a scenic sunset, and views of the Mississippi River floodplain.

The trail then drops back down to Limestone Lane and to the parking lot.

Cool Snowy Hike

I hit this up last Wednesday at sunrise in the middle of the heavier snow. No parts of the trail were too slippery save for the one uphill section. It wasn't unmanageable at all, though. The snow added a lot of interest to the hike and made for a more fun experience. I'm sure it's an awesome place for sunrise photography during spring and fall. I plan on revisiting when we get some greenery.

This little gem is only 30 Minutes from the house and has spectacular views of the Mississippi valley. Beautiful this time of year with no foliage to block the views.

Awesome trail! Can't be afraid of heights!
