  • An assortment of easy hikes with some nice views of the river and cliffs. Nice way to stretch your legs and enjoy nature, even if you only have an hour or two. The short train to the Julien Dubuque...

  • Mines of Spain showcases some of the best that the Driftless Area has to offer. Near the 3rd level observation area, there is an unofficial path to get on top of the east cliff (the one closer to the river) by simply doing some minor climbing/scrambling on the rocks. Otherwise, the trail circumventing the west cliff also has opportunities to get close to the precipice and really appreciate the size of the cliffs.
  • Very helpful and nice ranger on site and a great place to come watch birds. Superb hiking trails in the area.
