The panoramic splendor of this ride is breathtaking. Leaving Lake Pepin, the first climb takes you up the Mississippi River bluffs into lush farmlands. Soon the tour starts meandering on roads around coulees that straddle the spine of the ridge before another long descent. Now passing towns that once had a purpose along the rugged valley floor, you will soon approach Wabasha, a town famous for the movie setting of Grumpy Old Men. Entering town, you will have another great view of the river when you stop for a catfish sandwich lunch on the deck at Slippery’s. After stopping at the National Eagle Center, the route takes on another escalade up the bluff and runs the ridge back to Lake Pepin.
