Readers' Routes: Bob Small & the Horicon Hustle

Today's Reader's Route is from Bob Small and circles the Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. This relatively flat route incorporates some state trail and WDNR maintained roads.

Submission from Bob Small

The Horicon Hustle is a mostly flat route on a variety of surfaces crossing Horicon Marsh twice: once across the WDNR maintained Main Dike Road in the south and once across the US Fish and Wildlife Service Old Marsh Road in the north. It also incorporates gravel on the Wild Goose state trail and some tarmac on the scenic auto loop and lightly trafficked CTH Z.

While it is quite flat, the rough surfaces on the dike roads can be challenging. And if you get a headwind crossing the open marsh, it can be downright punishing.

*Note that Old Marsh road is closed in parts of spring and fall to protect migrating birds.
