Written Directions

Start in Red Wing, MN and head west on US Highway 61 for about 5.5 miles. Take a left on to highway 19 (now heading south) for about 7 miles. This road offers some good turns but the next road is even better. Now take a right on to County 7 Blvd and stay on this heading north for 8 miles. This will take you to and through Welch, MN and continue all the way up to the route's endpoint when you run back into US Highway 61.

Scenery

You'll be going through a valley that at times feels like being in the mountain valley out west. Overall beautiful scenery and would be even better in the fall with the leaves are changing.

Drive Enjoyment

This is the twistiest road I have ridden in southern Minnesota ... I'm not exaggerating ... way better than the Rushford highway 16. I'm not exaggerating ... this is a fun road! Some corners are very tight and tend to be addictive.

Tourism Opportunities

Nothing to mention as far as roadside amenities. However, gas and food can be found in Red Wing.

To make this run a loop, try taking hwy 35 (cty Q) out of Prescott, Wi to Hager City. You can then take the bridge across to Red Wing.I have not ridden this road for several years, but the last time I was on it, the conditions were pretty good. We used to call the section from Prescott to Diamond bluff the "Roller coaster". Try it and you'll see why.

Very Twisty fun ride. There is a bar in the heart of Welch called Cannon River Inn at the 4 way stop sign that everyone over looks. They have picnic tables outside. Absolutely amazing burgers - much better than Kings in Miesville. The best part is sitting outside on a hot summer day and watching the bikini's come off the river from the Tubing place. We spent the whole afternoon one day. Not sure what was more fun the ride or the view at the bar.
