If you’re looking for a short hike with an amazing payoff, there’s nothing better than taking a quick visit to Great River Bluffs State Park southeast of Winona. In less than a mile of easy hiking (or should we say walking) you are guaranteed spectacular, sweeping views of the Mississippi and the surrounding bluff country. It’s the perfect way to experience the best of MN’s natural beauty on days when it’s hot and muggy and hiking just seems like a miserable idea.
