Legend has it that the daughter of the Dakota Sioux Chief Red Wing jumped to her death from the cliff which is now called Maiden Rock. This route is named for that cliff which is visible from the Great River Road.  This route is at the northern edge of the Driftless Area. Tall bluffs give way quickly to the rolling hills that make up most of this part of the Midwest. We managed to shoehorn a good ride into this area by taking advantage of all of the hills that exist.  The Maiden Rock Route hugs the Mississippi River between Hager City and Stockholm, Wisconsin, but the rest of the route explores the hills that run north-south away from the river.  There are several parks in the towns and villages on this route, as well as the UFO Display in Elmwood and the Tribute to the Moon Mission and Crystal Cave in Spring Valley. However, be sure to fill up your tank when you can as many of the smaller towns do not have services.
