A couple weeks ago, my husband and I hiked around Grandad Bluff. I was so excited to get out and explore the area more. We prepared by putting on our sunscreen, hydrating, and spraying with bug spray.
We have driven up the bluff many times for the beautiful view and Ben has rode his bike up, but this time we wanted to hike up.
We ended up not finding one trail, but a lot of little bluffside hiking trails. Some of them are not easy and can become very scary for the average hiker, however, there are a fewbeginner level trails that have a nice overlook that is different from the main one at the top.
There were also many brightly colored flowers along the trail!
The bluff is beautiful and being deep into the wilderness really puts you at peace. After a few hours of being adventurous I was exhausted so Ben gave in and we left the bluff for the day.
Then we went to our new favorite local ice cream shop, Ranison Ice Cream and Candy in La Crosse. They have amazing hand dipped ice cream in all different kinds of flavors. We treated ourselves to our choice along with a locally brewed root beer. We come from a small town and we love the small town hidden gems in the area. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and had a fantastic Sunday. We are excited to keep trying new hiking trails.
