ABOUT THE RIDE

Our point of departure is the Glacial Drumlin State Trailhead (juncture of Rts. 89 and Hwy. A), Lake Mills, Wisconsin, in picturesque Jefferson County.

We wheel southwestward on the Glacial Drumlin State Trail to the Korth County Park and a brief stint of grass track “rough stuff” through the prairie path.

Thence westward again, through tunnel and over bridge to the Lake Mills Wildlife Marsh to espy the glorious water birds. And so along the trail to London, that bustling megalopolis of 200 souls.

We amble in a southerly direction down Route 134 to Cambridge and the Ripley Bakery.

Thence east-by-southeast by way of the famous Ripley Road along the shores of Lake Ripley and via rustic roads north to Mud Lake Road toward Lake Mills, with a brief stop at Sandhill Station State Campground to walk the boardwalks and take in the Glacial Heritage Water Trail.

Back at the Glacial Drumlin Trail Headquarters to our waiting motorcars and a fond farewell till next year’s Rural Ramble. Hardy souls may stay for a spin into Lake Mills and the Tyranena Brewery.
