  • Great view! Drive to the top, park, and get out of your car. Then let your eyes drift over the town to the north, the bridge to Illinois, and (oh, my!) the length of the mighty Mississippi River...

  • The drive up is steep but its a must see for the town. This would be great to view in the fall. You have an excellent view of the river and surrounding area along with Hannibal. Many couples place...

  • Cool view of the river from up here! The story of how Lovers Leap got its name is engraved in a plaque. Interesting!
  • I've visited Lovers Leap for years; because Hannibal was my teenage home. The overlook provides good views of central Hannibal as well as a stunning view into the Mississippi River flood plain in Illinois. This would be a five star review if it wasn't because of the drive to the overlook. The road to the top is a rather steep grade; I'd guess about 9% or even greater. Your vehicle needs to be in top shape to make the drive. And, if the weather is bad, including light rain - don't try it.
