Rustic Road 48

This road curves among rolling hills, typical of the ground moraines found in Wisconsin's central plains region. R-48 passes through the valley of the Pine River, a Class II trout stream. Much of the agricultural land and fallow fields found along this route support ring-necked pheasants, sandhill cranes, deer, red fox, beaver, otter and a wide variety of song birds. A log cabin and two farmhouses, built before the Civil War on 160-acre Homestead Act grants, are visible from R-48.
