Located on the Mississippi River, Frontenac is a birdwatcher's paradise. It's one of the best spots in the country to view birds migrating in the spring and fall. More than 260 species of birds have been recorded here. No wonder: Lake Pepin's diverse habitats -- bluffland, prairie, floodplain forest and upland hardwood forest -- attract numerous warblers, hawks, waterfowl and shorebirds. Hikers and skiers enjoy spectacular views of this beautifully wooded river valley. Fishing, swimming and boat tours are all available nearby.

Not hard tho. I'd say moderate not hard. I've done this hike in the late fall and again in the spring. The nice thing about going at the end of the fall was some of the rock formations where more viewable due to the lack of foliage in the trees. I hope to go back in the fall during peak leaf color change.
