The Driftless Area, a 24,000 square mile swath through parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa, was left untouched by glaciers. Left behind was scenic beauty and incredible geographic features making the area ideal for exploration and the perfect place for fun, midwest motorcycle rides.
Driftless Road Adventures has mapped over 7,500 miles of what we believe to be the best roads in the area with curves and twisties, elevation changes and incredible scenery. You can choose from 33 different day trip routes, each between 220 and 270 miles in length, that are free to download. Each route is a loop so you can start and end at any point along it. Use the map to view individual routes. All routes are 100% paved as of the time of posting, however seasonal road work can not be predicted. Dual Sport routes will be coming soon! Now what are you waiting for? Gear up, mount up and ride!

—Tried one of the routes awhile back and it was well planned, utilizing some of the best roads in the area.
♦Paul Strubell (dirtorca.com) reviewed Driftless Road Adventures– 5 stars
–—A great resource if you are interested in riding this area
–—My wife and I road most of the St. Croix route last week. We enjoyed the roads and scenery around all the many curves. We also liked how we have the roads all to our selves with the exception of a farm truck or implement.

–Your maps are true works of art! Thank you so very much for putting in all the hard work. GPX/POI routes worked great with my CaliMoto app (Android). Got a chance to do about 1/2 of the Wildcat and maybe just 1/4 of Mindoro Cut route this weekend. Amazing! Been through the Driftless before with little to no planning…really didn’t go so well. Your maps are invaluable!
