Rustic Road 65

Hawthorne Road is the only gravel road in the City of Mequon. Much of the road is lined with oak, maple and weeping willow trees that provide a canopy in the summer and a blaze of color in the fall. The open land along R-65 is under cultivation or is pasture land for horses and sheep making pleasant agricultural vistas. The area surrounding the road is habitat for deer, rabbits, hawks, and songbirds. The road is popular with hikers, bikers, equestrians and motorists.
