McGilvray Road is located in Northwest La Crosse County, Wisconsin, in the Van Loon Wildlife Area. Located on a former vehicular road is a unique combination of five rare bowstring arch truss bridges and one low truss bridge. They represent two styles of bridge construction popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which are quickly being replaced due to deterioration or inability to meet today's greater traffic requirements. Currently the McGilvray Road and its bridges are open only to pedestrian traffic. 

The McGilvray Road Truss Bridge Group is on the Wisconsin State and National Registers of Historic Places.  The five remaining bowstring arch truss bridges are over 100 years old.
