This ride, which circles the Luce Line Trail, starts in a village that in 1882 survived the tragic Sioux Uprising and prospered. Today agriculture and manufacturing are the staples that guarantee continued growth for Hutchinson, located at the center of the Luce Line Trail system. After crossing the Crow River, the route takes you north through an old oak savanna forest. Traveling to the east, you will pass a number of pristine lakes on your way to a town heavily influenced by its German ancestry. Circling back to the southwest, the route visits a number of old railroad towns. Riding past the South Fork of the Crow River, you will see a site where a town was built to utilize the river’s waterpower. Abandoned now, this village and others tell a story of the Luce Line Cruise.
