Ocooch Mountain Climb Professional Review and Guide
"No, there are no true mountains in Wisconsin anymore, but once upon a time, there were mountains to rival those paltry hills out west. To find them, you have to travel back in time millions and millions of years. What remains, after several Ice Age episodes, are some hills that make you think you're in mountains when you're riding a bike.
These hills and ridgetops are known locally as the Ocooch Mountains. Although hilly countryside surrounds Richland Center, the Ocooch Fall Bicycle Tour, one of Wisconsin's most scenic rides, uses the roads of this ride for one of its short and less challenging loops. Hills are unavoidable here, but there are only a couple of true gut-wrenchers. Things to see: Richland Center, orchards, valleys, and panoramic views."
