This ride offers those up for the test a true taste of coulee country. The route starts in a river community along the Mississippi and uses the paved trail through the river bottom marshlands to get you in and out of town. On the road you will roll through the countryside past several Swiss Valley Farms before approaching a village named for a town in Vermont. After climbing up and riding the spine of the ridge, you will pass through a town that was named for its location on a ridge between two other ridges. Now traveling south, the route rolls past a nature center in Norwegian Valley before reaching a town with a swimming beach and park on Coon Creek. As you follow Mormon Creek to the west, the route twists and turns as several Wisconsin rollers offer you one thrill after another. You will then travel on several residential streets to Myrick Park and return to the Three Rivers Trail for the ride back to Riverside Park in La Crosse.
