Written Directions

Start this route in Savanna, IL. Head north on US 52 and on the north end of town you will see a street marked "Scenic Ridge Route" that goes off to the east (take a right off of US 52). Take Scenic Ridge Route as it climbs up through some city streets to the top of bluffs, then heads north. Later this road will change names to Route 7/Derinda Rd. at the JoDaviess County line but you won't even notice cause you'll be having too much fun. Stay on this north till the route's end point when it runs into US Highway 20 about 2 miles east of Elizabeth, IL.

Scenery

Scenic vistas, rolling hills, farms. Exceptional fall foliage. Starts out at the beautiful Mississippi Palisades State Park.

Drive Enjoyment

Smooth road surface, plenty of sweeping corners and elevation changes.

Tourism Opportunities

Nothing along this route but scenery and turns.

Ride this route several times a year with my brother. We both really enjoy the road and scenery. Great ride. For a longer ride go on to Dubuque (W US 20 to S US 61) and back down US 52 to Sabula, IA then cross the river back to Savanna.

I rode some of that route yesterday! What a great and fun ride! I turned off at Albrecht Rd and then continued North on S. Massbach. That was fun too. I wish I had turned around and done it again!! Will be going back though!!

A group of us rode this on 06/29/08. I couldn't believe we were in Illinois. Great road.
