The Ferryville Tourism Council is sponsoring a hike this Saturday, July 22 at Sugar Creek Bluff in Ferryville, WI as part of the annual River Bluff Daze celebration. Attendees are asked to meet at the Ferryville Boat Landing (north end of town behind the Cheapo Depot) at 8:30 a.m. for treats, sign-in and handouts. The group will carpool to the trailhead for the gradual hike to the summit.

Sugar Creek Natural Area is managed by the Mississippi Valley Conservancy. Attendees are asked to wear long pants and bring insect repellent. This will be a family-friendly hike to see the summer wildflowers, trees and the view from the top.

Dave Troester from the Crawford County Conservation Department will be the guide for this hike. He has been up on this bluff many times and is very knowledgeable about the plants and area.

After the hike, attendees can join in the rest of the River Bluff Daze activities, including a tractor pull at the village hall at noon, Ferryville Farmer’s Market at Sugar Creek Park from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Kids’ Carnival at the village hall from 12 noon-1:30 p.m., and fireworks at dusk.  A free shuttle is available for traveling between Sugar Creek Park and the village hall.
