Scenery

Go from the prairies to the "mountains" of Illinois while enjoying some really winding roads with great scenery and riding thrills.

Road Quality

Beginning on Route 20 In Freeport, you move from the gentle hills and prairie to the "mountains" and sweepers around Galena and on the Mississippi, if desired.

Roadside Amenities

In the town of Galena, you'll find plenty of antique shops, boutiques and fine restaurants along the way and there are other hangouts in Freeport and Dubuque (Iowa). Overall this section of Illinois is a very popular tourist area and will have plenty to offer you.

Also along the Stage Coach Trail on the west side of Lena, Il is another wind farm that cuts a destructive path through a very scenic top of the crest type road.

If you enjoy this ride, please help us keep it nice.There is a 13,000 head factory farm and its 70 acres of manure holding lagoons proposed to be built just West of Stage Coach Trail near Nora,Illinois.The stench and flies with travel for miles. Lets keep this the great ride that it has been for many years. We don't want to have to start riding around with gas masks on....do we? Just go to STOPTHEMEGADAIRY ORG and call or email the Governor and IDOA with the links provided.Thanks!
