All SmilesSavannah, IL
 Set along the Mississippi River, the Mississippi Palisades is a climbing destination rich in Native American history.

Climbers gather in ‘The Cove’  where limestone bluffs rise over 180 feet tall. Here, friendly climbers share tips on classic top-rope climbs such as “Nosey” and “First Crack.” 

Beyond climbing, the Palisades are a popular destination for scenic hikes, caving, and wildlife viewing. White-tailed deer, muskrat, weasel, mink, gray/red fox, woodchuck, badger, wild turkey, eagles, and woodpeckers are just some of the fauna that make the Palisades a memorable destination.
