This ride starts on the east side of Monroe County and circles up around the edge of rugged coulee terrain before passing through colorful cranberry fields. The route starts in a Lemonweir Valley community named for a great Indian chief with strong character and high ideals, and rolls to the north. The first town you come to was originally known as Blue Ridge, but the name was changed once a tunnel was built through the bluffs here. After climbing up the ridge, enjoy 10 miles of roller coaster fun before the cruise levels out on its way to the “Cranberry Capital of Wisconsin.” As you turn south, you’ll travel through a colorful marsh area with patches of jack pine forest before reaching an old railroad village. Now circling back to the west, continue to enjoy scenes of productive berry farms as you make your way back to Tomah.
