    Your favorite day ride from Wisconsin Dells

    We are going to spend one week in Wisconsin Dells and we are looking for the best of the best day rides, from 150 to 300 miles. We KNOW that there is some fabulous riding in the Rockport..Kickapoo area! We need your favorite loops! We will appreciate all of your suggestions. Thanks so much!

    With all respect that is due, my favorite day ride from Wisconsin Dells would be as far away as I could get. The same is true of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Disney World.

    From downtown Dells, presuming you intend to remain in Wisconsin, anyplace west to the river and south to the state line. Preferably the alphabet roads.

    Devil's Lake is close and both interesting and beautiful.

    I guess the 150-300 mile ride blew right past you...

    Dells ride

    Hi John and Ann. I would agree with Mr. Manic. Go west young man along the The Wis. (Hwy 60)and Mississippi (Hwy35 also called The Great River Road) rivers. Any place in the southwest corner is great. If you ride on Sunday stop at the Rockton Inn for a great chicken dinner (not the wedding type) To get to Rockton take Wis. Hwy 33 by Wildcat Mountain into Ontario. Take a left on Hwy 131 and then 7 miles south and look for smoke from the grilling and a lot of motorcycles. Have a safe ride. Kevin
