Chain O' Lakes/Rustic Road Tour

Wisconsin's Rustic Roads system is described as a positive step backwards. This grassroots movement preserves the character of unique by-ways. It has designated more than 60 roads in the past 20 years. These roads are protected from development. You'll be glad they are when riding Rural Road (R-23) and Emmons Creek Road (R-24). Rural Road is a roll through our nation's nineteenth century heritage. Simple Greek Revival and Italianate Victorian homes mix with woods and fields along the route. On Emmons Creek Road you'll plunge into a forest canopy adjacent to a wildlife preserve. There are plenty of other lovely roads in the area. Fountain Lake Road is a favorite. You'll agree that the best road at times is a road left rustic.
