Vernon City P + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Cty P runs east from Coon Valley, crossing Hwy 27 just north of Westby and continues east and continuing to carve through the drifltess area. At the intersection of Hwy 131, follow the signage north through Rockton and then east again. CtH P then ends at Hwy 82 a few miles west of Hillsboro.
This route lives in the heart of SW Wisconsin's Driftless Region. Twisty roads, bluffs, and the coulees of the Kickapoo river valley. Fall colors bring out the best views, but any time of the riding season provides excellent eye candy
The western part of this route (Coon Valley to Hwy 27) is on fairly rough tarmac, with the surface greatly improving as one rides east.
The road is a good mix of sweeping curves and wiggly twisties, with the most technical riding toward the eastern part of the route.
As this is farm country, keep an eye out for machinery and gravel in the corners. The area also has a substantial Amish population, so be cautious of buggies and horses.
Coon Valley has food and fuel, as does Hillsboro to the east.
Stockhouse Grill and Saloon in Coon Valley is a good meeting place. Rockton Bar in Rockton has excellent Sunday chicken-Qs every Sunday (make reservations).
Hillsboro has a great brewpub in the Hillboro Brewing Company serving great sandwiches and excellent pizza.
Just east of Rockton, keep an eye out for 24 Valley Road and follow it to the Blue Goose for Pizza or Ice Cream. A bit hard to find, but well worth it.
