Location:  Northeast Wisconsin, Waupaca County. Foley Road and Town Line Road between US 10 and WIS 54.

Length:  4.1 miles

Surface:  Paved

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail follows this route. A log house used by hikers is located on the Foley Road segment. The scenic beauty of R-57 is enhanced by rolling hills and an arch of trees over the road at two points. Deep ravines directly off the road are accented with ferns and a variety of wild flowers. Bluebirds and other wild song birds are regular visitors to the large apple orchard along both sides of South Foley Road. The Waupaca River flows along a portion of the road; the rapids can be heard at the Cobbtown Road bridge.
