University of Wisconsin-Platteville reportedly maintains the largest M in the country, on the southern slope of Platteville Mounds. The letter can be explored via stairs. The view on top include Platteville and surrounding areas in southwest Wisconsin, as well as part of Iowa.

Nice short trip up close to the big white M letter -- visible for many miles from highways. The wooden stairs are nice and sturdy, and climbs alongside the M. It's steep but mercifully short. There are several picnic tables on top the letter. Fantastic view of the beautiful countryside.
