Perrot State Park, where the Trempealeau River meets the Mississippi River, has 1,270 acres of diverse ecosystems. The river bank and surrounding wetlands provide wonderful habitat for the many migratory birds that travel through this area twice a year. Hardwood forests with mature black walnut, oak, and hickory are home to many animals, birds, and woodland wildflowers. Unique to southwestern Wisconsin and Perrot are the goat prairies perched high on the bluffs.

Great trail, great view at the top!

Great trail, moderate, inclined and hilly the view is gorgeous once you reach the shelter, pretty much shaded, parking after 10am is a problem so plan ahead.

Beautiful view of Winona!

Great hike today! Left the hiking trail for the ski trails on the back side. I saw nobody while the full parking lot was hiking the front-side trail to Brady Bluff.
