We hiked John A. Latsch on June 24th, 2022.
The Riverview Trail has a rating of difficult due to the 592 steps one needs to take straight up the bluff to Mount Charity Overlook.
On a hot, sunny and humid summer day we took our time climbing up those stairs. We saw glimpses of what the top of the bluff might offer the higher we climbed.
We made it to the top of the bluff! The overlook was worth the climb. The view of the mighty Mississippi River was magnificent.
Lock and Dam #5 can be seen in the distance.
What goes up must come down.
Our hiking adventure was 592 steps straight up the bluff.
