Start at N. Washington at W Main Street in Mount Horeb. Take N. Washington which is also County JG north to Stewart Lake County Park (Follow the signs). Stay on JG for about 15-20 minutes depending on your riding speed. You will come back to County Road ID in Blue Mounds. It's a fun ride with plenty of curves and scenery.
This route curves around the rocky outcroppings at Stewart Lake. Many old dairy farms dot the Driftless landscape. Be sure to bring your camera if you enjoy photographing old barns.
This road contains a lot of sweeping curves and some uneven surfaces around the county park. The rest of the ride is smooth sailing with the curves dotted here and there.
You can stop at the dam on the south end of Stewart Lake County Park and take in the view of the lake.
I love this route! I tried it last year for the first time and have twice brought other riders with me to try it. If the day is hot, take a dip in Stewart Lake to cool down. If you add Mt. Horeb to New Glarus, the long way to this route, you are in for 60 miles of a very enjoyable ride. The Grumpy Troll in Mt Horeb is a great place for a burger before you start.
