Kickapoo river valley + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Hgwy 131 out of Tomah, Wi, south through the valley a great scenic tour along the Kickapoo River,ample opportunity to take scenic roads off the main route which provide significant hilly terrain to ride on. Includes views of Amish Communities and great cheese factories. Ends at LaFarge, Wi. Scenery great, road quality excellent and amenities marginal, except for the kickapoo River Visitor Center which is very interesting.
This route crosses the Kickapoo River at least 12 times as it winds thru the valley, beautiful forests on either side and if one ventures onto the scenic road as designated, major elevation changes and very interesting elements including an Amish school and many farms, a great local cheese factory and store and some very prosperous farms.
The main road is great, well paved and maintained, 45 mph limit, the scenic road is less maintained but still quite good, frequent horse droppings to avoid from the many carriagers that use the road.
Highlight of the road is the visitor center which tells the story f the dam that was never built.
