Bluffs Traverse

Winona, MN | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG developed a comprehensive plan to optimize its bluffs for outdoor recreation like hiking and biking.


Opportunity

Responding to the nationwide upswing in hiking and mountain biking, the City of Winona recognized the opportunity to turn its beautiful bluff landscape into a destination recreation area.

Solution

ISG worked with the City of Winona to develop the Bluffs Traverse Conservation and Recreation Area Comprehensive Plan, resulting in two different plans linking together three parks (Sugar Loaf, Garvin, and Bluffside) for the ambitious project, including 10-16 miles of mountain bike trails, and 8-10 miles of shared use and hiking area. Amenities on the trail include scenic overlooks, rock and ice climbing, outdoor classrooms, and rest stops, inclusive of interactive and wayfinding signage.
