Written Directions

Easy to describe - just take Illinois Rte 96 Between Nauvoo & Hamilton.

Scenery

Fabulous Mississippi River scenic views along entire length of road.

Drive Enjoyment

Smooth road surface, slow sweeping corners that hugs the path of the river the entire time. Mostly flat.

Tourism Opportunities

There are a few roadside picnic areas along route but other than that, nothing except at the starting point and ending point. If you are into history, there is an interesting and extensive Mormon settlement history in Nauvoo.

Good short ride with a Mississippi River view. In the fall Nauvoo has a grape festival complete with a car and motorcycle show that makes a good destination.

This is a very awesome road . I love riding it from Hamilton clear up to Highway 34 . Hamilton to Nauvoo is out of this world . Rode it many times and planning on riding many more times .
