Written Directions

From the south. In West Salem turn north on Hwy 108 which connects to Hwy 16 on the east side of town.
From the north. Hwy 108 connects with Hwy 54 on the south end of Melrose.
It is better to ride this route from the south as the most technical parts are climbing up the south side of the hills.


Hwy 108 runs through mainly agricultural land in valleys and over wooded hills and bluffs. Much of the southern part is twisty enough to keep your attention on the road, and not the scenery.

Road Quality

The road is in passable condition. Some parts can be a bit rough and watch for gravel on the road in tight corners. The middle part of the ride, just south of Mindoro is the most technical section with tight turns and switch backs.

Roadside Amenities

There is fuel and food at both ends in West Salem and Melrose. Stop in Mindoro at Top Dawgs snd try one of 108 hamburgers on the menu! Big Boar BBQ in West Salem (just west of

Additional Info

Due to state and country politics, What was WI Hwy 108 is now Lacrosse Cty Hwy C. And the old Cty Hwy C is now WI Hwy 108. (they flip-flopped the road designations)
Follow the same basic directions, but stay on Cty C to go over the cut.
