Start in Shawano (about 30 miles NW of Green Bay) and simply take Hwy 55 north all the way up till it reaches Near Mole Lake ...which is just the small town of Nashville, WI (East of Rhinelander). A total of about 66 miles.
Mostly trees on both sides, some open areas. You'll take in some nice river scenery as the route hugs Wolf River for much of the ride and passes by multiple lakes. The route primarily travels through The Menomonee Reservation but briefly goes through a small corner of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Overall, I would go out of my way to ride this road, its that good !!!
Road is excellent, the ride thru the reservation is twists and turns all the way thru, straightens out a bit after you leave the reservation but overall a great motorcycle road!
Gas at the south end, Shawano, and again after you leave the reservation. Not really much else to do ... take this one for the ride and scenery not the "amenities."
