Sandbar Trail at Great River Road State Park Professional Review and Guide
"This is one of the most unusual hikes in the state. A trail leaves the shoreline of the Mississippi River and heads out to a waterside sandbar. A trip here will help you gain an understanding of the massive size of Old Man River. The Sandbar Trail leaves the picnic area to cross a wooden bridge over a wetland. The bridge was an Eagle Scout project by Rob Crump. The river is already visible in the distance, even at low water, which is when you should be doing this hike. If the water is high, there will be no sandbar exposed and the flowing waters will be relatively close. Begin heading toward the Mississippi before curving right, running parallel and upstream with the river."
