By Caroline Rosacker 

The steep hill heading north on the outskirts of Guttenberg, on the Great River Road, has been called  "Heitman Hill" for as long as anyone can remember. The narrow strip of pavement rests between a limestone bluff and a steep drop-off overlooking the backwaters of the Mississippi River. It offers walkers, runners and bicyclists a healthy challenge during the warm weather months and a driving challenge to motorists in the winter.
