Note:  We have just learned about a construction detour on this route.  County Road C7X (Garber Road) near Guttenburg is out for a bridge replacement.  If you are riding on this route the designated detour is to take County Road C43 (Jolly Ridge Road) between Osterdock Road and Highway 52.  This construction detour will be in place until late July or early August 2018.

Even though this route begins and ends in Dubuque, it is named for two of its featured attractions.  Bring your ball glove and have a catch at the Field of Dreams, and prepare for some incredible views from the Balltown Scenic Overlook.  This 270 mile route also explores rural Iowa and its many farming communities.
