"The unsurpassed beauty to be found in this part of Southwestern Wisconsin will surprise you with every bend in the road."
"State Highway 131 north of Rockton is one of the most lovely - and definitely the crookedist - stretches of highway in all of Wisconsin. Your route will cross the Kickapoo River at least five times in a five mile stretch." - Kickapoo Valley Reserve

A scenic stretch of Highway 131 that will be destroyed if a new highway is built.

Continued Threat to the Kickapoo Valley

The unique geology, biology and peaceful beauty of the Kickapoo Valley will be destroyed by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WDOT) plan to cut a new major truck route through the narrow valley along the Kickapoo River between Rockton and Ontario in Vernon County.

Their plan calls for cutting the hillsides, filling the valleys and wetlands, and widening the clearing of the existing road to at least twice and in places several times its present width!

Local residents, environmentalists, business owners, and outdoor sports enthusiasts have joined together under the banner of the Kickapoo Valley Stewardship Alliance to fight the WDOT plan and protect this 300 million year old, unglaciated valley.
