The Kickapoo River may be the most crooked river in Wisconsin, but what it lacks in direction it makes up for with captivating scenery. A driving tour up or down Hwy. 131 is one way to explore the Kickapoo River Valley, allowing plenty of time for side trips including Wildcat Mountain State Park. Biking is another option. The most idyllic choice may be canoeing down the slow-moving Kickapoo River beneath 30 feet tall limestone bluffs, verdant hillsides and the apple orchards that surround Gays Mills.
