  • This site is incredible for views of Galena and the river. The hiking trails are a bit burly if you take all of them.  more »
  • Stopped to take a quick walk and see what the locals were talking about. Glad we did as the view of the surrounding countryside was nice.  more »

  • I came here with low expectations...I thought it was a little cliff to see Galena and that was it. Boy, was I surprised. This place is magnificent. So many beautiful and bright wild flowers everywhere and lots of info about the area and what not. My favorite part was the little pathways throughout the area. I also liked the kid game they had there. Definitely better to go on the spring or summer when everything is blooming. Cant wait to go back again on my next visit to Galena.
  • Beautiful place. They have a scavenger hunt that was fun for my son to do. Only complaint is the hill that is not easy to get back up and is in the sun and not an actual trail. It was very hot and my son even had trouble getting back up the long hill. We will be better prepared next time though :)
