Wisconsin’s first Rustic Road was dedicated in 1975. A historical marker alongside the road commemorates the designation. R-1 crosses through hills and valleys created by the last Wisconsin glacier nearly 12,000 years ago. Timms Hill National Trail, connecting the nearby Ice Age Trail with
R-62 and Timms Hill Observation Tower nine miles to the north, is open year round for hiking, skiing and snowshoeing. A public beach is located at South Harper Lake.
