Beginning in Osceola, Wisconsin, along the St. Croix River, the route is mostly flat as it makes a gradual transition from dairy farms to northern lakes as well as pine and birch forests. The county roads through the northern Wisconsin lakes are narrow, hilly and rough in some places, but traffic is very light, the air is fresh and clear and the scenery is bucolic. This map section includes a spur into the metropolis of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

More information about this route is available here.

The map is, as always, excellent. But the route...


Reviewed By: Stephen Kling on 11/2/18

No quibbles with route, though I did not complete it due to terribly wet and cold conditions in early October. And that’s my main point: Northern Wisconsin was fieercely unpredictable, weather-wise. I expected a mild, leafy, autumn colors week in rolling farmland, but nearly froze in low 40s rain-whipped winds. Consider this route for summer. Think twice (or have lots of rain days figured into your schedule) for other times.
