Mindoro PicMindoro Cut Route Profile

The Mindoro Cut Route includes one of the most famous motorcycle roads in Wisconsin, the Mindoro Cut.  The cut is 74 feet (23 m) deep, 86 feet (26 m) long, and 25 feet (7.6 m) wide; it is the second-deepest cut built by hand in the Western Hemisphere and the oldest functional cut which has not been improved upon.  At approximately 270 miles long, this route, starting in La Crosse, WI, explores the hills and valleys surrounding La Crosse.  A trip to  Granddad’s Bluff  is well worth the time…the overlooks are incredible!  In addition, you will have the chance to conquer 3 Wisconsin Rustic Roads on this route.
