Stunning views of the rivers but pretty crowded, you won't be alone there. Steps to the Falls are pretty. Stop in town of McGregor for lunch and shopping.

Great river overlooks. Trails well layed out with minimal steep inclines. Some trails to preserve erosion have steps and boardwalks which never excite me. Great campsites. Many indian mounds.

This was a great hike overall. There were sloping hills and the various little streams were all draining to make everything absolutely gorgeous. The views were spectacular from the Crow's Nest and up by Point Ann.
We started from the Homestead Parking lot which made everything seem a lot stranger when we arrived over at the main parking lot where there were shelters, grills, and paved sidewalks. The majority of the trails though were wide dirt.
The Bridal Veil Falls are pretty, and there is also another one that is right around the side that is just as pretty without a bridge going right over the top of it.

Nice, mostly wooded hike. Some of the trails were not marked very well, especially the West Hickory Ridge Trail head coming off the East Hickory Trail head. Aside from that, it was great hike!

Such a beautiful park. The overlooks are amazing! At one point you can see where the Wisconsin River empties into the Mississippi River.

This was our last hike of a 3 day extreme hiking trip! Nice stop:) beautiful sights immediately seen. We decided to go on bridal veils falls trail and the stairs themselves were enough to get my heart racing! It's quite a drop if they ever give out...after seeing the falls we continued the trail and immediately seen an owl:) beautiful! (We were looking for an eagle when the owl made a surprise appearance) as we pulled out the binoculars to see closer we noticed a few 100 feet from us what was either a large wild dog or a coyote! We called in to pikes peak office and they did call us back letting us know they do have coyotes! Pretty cool (since I'm alive and writing this review, lol!)

It was really nice. We camped overnight and went hiking the next day. Half of the campground was electric, half wasn't. Clean public restrooms. Everyone was friendly. Make sure to bring cash. We hiked to Point Ann, which was an eight mile round-trip hike, and it was beautiful and well kept and clearly marked. Make sure to stop in the nearby town of McGregor, it's adorable. Just avoid Latinos, their idea of Mexican food is awful.
