Memorial Park

Red Wing

This bluff, about 1 mile east of downtown, offers stunning vistas of central Red Wing below and the Mississippi River out in the distance. You can drive to the top or park the car and hike along several marked trails. To find it, follow E 7th St out of downtown, turning right on winding Skyline Dr to the top.
