Mississippi Palisades

This route is going to bring you along the Mississippi River and end at a State Park with breathtaking views. The Palisades has some of the highest points in the state. The North Entrance leads to easier trails and the South one leads to more strenuous hikes. 

Galena is beautiful all year long, but the fall has a certain anticipation to it.  It's like a rest after the summer and a pause before the winter holidays all wrapped into one.  We'd love to be part of your well-deserved rest and relaxation this fall or any time you can get away!
