These 7 Epic Bluffs And Cliffs In Iowa Will Drop Your Jaw

Out-of-staters have the impression that Iowa is all flatlands and cornfields – but they’re wrong. We may not have mountains, but we have plenty more to show for! From the dazzling 300-foot-tall bluffs of the Upper Iowa River, to the steep and rolling Loess Hills, here are 7 epic cliffs and bluffs in Iowa.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Next time someone argues that everything in Iowa is flat, just show them this. Better yet, tell them to try hiking or climbing up one of these cliffs or bluffs – they will find out very soon just how “flat” Iowa is.
