We made the trip to Pikes Peak to view the fall foliage. Normally it's very beautiful this time of year. However, because of the bad weather Iowa has been having, the foliage was quite disappointing. The lookout points, at the park, give you a good...More

Pikes point sits high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The views are magnificent. The park is a nice stop for those traveling the great river road - our stop was on a fall weekday and we had the place to ourselves. Enjoyed watching...More

Pikes Peak is an Iowa State Park and guess what, Iowa state parks are free to enter! Don't miss the beauty of this park with the scenic over-looks and trickling waterfalls! Any time we are in the McGregor area we make certain to stop and...More

Holy stairs first of all! But totally worth it. Absolutley beautiful scenery when you walk the paths I just couldn't get over how pretty it all was. A little store has a few snacks and souvenirs, there are clean restrooms and a small playground. Definitely...More

Loved it here. We had a sunny day and before we even started we sat watching beautiful and fairly tame Hummingbirds at the park entrance...and there were loads of them! The view over the river was awesome, you could see for miles! The trails were...More

Breathtaking views. Wish I would’ve waited a few more weeks to see the color changes in fall. Not a far walk at all for the best views. Bridal Falls was pretty cool but the showstopper is definitely the views from the bluff which is a...More
