Grandad Bluff Trail Project was first conceived as a way to help kids get safely from the bottom to the top of Grandad Bluff, without confronting cars and trucks on the narrow and winding Bliss Road. It is a noble idea made possible by 160 acres of unused La Crosse City park land situated (roughly) between Bliss Road and Ebner Coulee. Park land that is underutilized and laden with rogue trails, litter, invasive species, and graffiti (Note: last spring 120 ORA volunteers dedicated a day of their life to remove graffiti with super clean up tool Elephant Snot!).
To address concerns over visibility to traffic on the 29th street access point, signage, gates, and other forms of safety prevention will be considered to make trail users aware and vigilant of approaching cars.
