Location: Northwest Wisconsin, Pierce County. Portions of 20th Avenue, 197th Street and 50th Avenue from County CC to County AA.

Length: 4.3 miles

Surface: Gravel

Located near rolling agricultural farmland, this narrow, winding, gravel road frequently crosses a trout stream in the midst of dense woodlands. At the intersection of 50th Avenue and County CC, there is a lovely old church from the late 1800s. Just a few miles south of County CC is a wayside historical marker and a replica of the house where Laura Ingalls Wilder grew up. She wrote about this house in the book Little House in the Big Woods.
