Written Directions

Independence is at the junction of Hwys 121 and 93 north of Arcadia Wi and west of Whitehall, WI. Hwy Q runs west out of Independence, watch closely for the road signs as it is easy to miss. From there just ride Q west until it joins Hwy 121 11 miles to the west.

Scenery

Hwy Q follows Wisconsin ridges and valleys from Independence, WI north of Arcadia west to it's end at Hwy 121. It is very twisty and technical and a pure delight to ride. It is farmland and one bucolic view leads to another.

Drive Enjoyment

This is a typical country road and as such is not perfectly smooth. Watch for gravel in the corners thrown up from the gravel shoulders, as well as the occasional deposit of horse manure.. It is very twisty, gloriously so.. Not super hilly but enough to be interesting.

Tourism Opportunities

Gas and food at Independence, otherwise there is absolutely nothing from one end to the other, no gas, no food, just great riding...

Hwy Q is an absolute joy to ride. Most of it runs along a ridge line so you see plenty. The road itself is in pretty good shape. There's one gravel pit in the area and the truck entrance to that can be loose-gravel covered. If you're in the area, definitely a must ride!

There's a lot of scenic roads in this area, but this is the first time I've run Q from Independece. Nice scenic route with lots of turns. The road is old but not bone jarring. It's about 20-miles long so I extended it to include the Montana Ridge and Hwy 95 between Arcadia and Fountain City making it an awesome scenic ride.
