The Black Hawk War of 1832 attracted a lot of attention to what would become Wisconsin. This scenic route travels through some of the area where this tribal conflict played out, in lush valleys where creeks flow between the mountain-like hills. You will head northwest from a town named for its rich soil, then climb up Hustler Ridge and ride the undulating spine with its scenic vistas. As the route meanders along the ridge, it soon circles back to the south. After the next descent, you will pass through a village that was named after the mayor of Madison, who had suggested naming the town Janesville. In the next valley that you roll into, stop in a village named for its bear population. Coming full circle, you will pass through a village named for a Great Lakes steamer captain before you cross and then follow the Pine River. After passing a oneroom schoolhouse museum, you will soon be back in Richland Center and ready to look at some of the buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
