Extending for nearly a mile, the 400 ft high bluff is especially noteworthy for the presence of nesting peregrine falcons, a state endangered species.

 

Situated along the Mississippi Flyway, the bluff is an important migration corridor for raptors and neotropical songbirds. The rock bluff provides hunting perches and habitat for a variety of other raptors including gyrfalcon, golden eagle, bald eagle and turkey vulture.
