Pepin County is remote and beautiful which suits adventurers of all kinds. Hwy 35 was voted the "prettiest drive” in the United States offering stunning views of tree-clad limestone bluffs, Lake Pepin with soaring eagles. The best road trips are on county highways and our unpaved windy township roads with unique names like Goat Back Road, Bear Pen Road, Back Valley Road and Beaver Slide Road. Fall is an excellent time to take a relaxing canoe trip on the Chippewa River as you paddle past the trees bursting with different shades of vibrant colors.
