Visiting this area is like journeying back 150 years in time. The ramble begins in a village where cream-colored brick buildings dominate the historic downtown landscape, and continues through countryside where many aspects have remained unchanged for more than a century. Leaving west through the tree-lined streets, you will follow Evergreen Boulevard up along Cedar Creek. Soon the route turns to the north and takes you through an old settlement where the stone tavern is the only sign of its legacy. As you make a loop up and around Paradise Road, one of the state’s “Rustic Roads,” the route cruises east into a village named after an Indian tribe, where two major trails once intersected. Following the Milwaukee River back to the southwest, the ramble comes full circle and crosses Cedar Creek on the historic toll bridge that this ride is named for. Soon you are passing through a village named for its multiple road intersections. After crossing Highway 60, you return to historic Cedarburg.
