What a lovely place to pray, reflect, walk and enjoy Gods splendor. Some walking areas are not accessible to people who do not walk well; however they do have a cart to drop people off at certain stops.

You would fly into La Crosse Airport, La Crosse Wisconsin. Then rent a car or Uber. Probably not open at this time of year.
