Were told by the Welcome Center to take this loop in Willow City. Very scenic and some unique views including a fence along one ranch with cowboy boots on top of the wooden fence posts. Slow going drive to take in the views. Recommend.

This is a great ride on a motorcycle, the road travels through private property with signs stating to please stay in vehicles so there's no opportunity to take pictures. Will do again in the spring.

We drove this scenic drive in the summer, but it would be especially beautiful in the spring when the wildflowers are blooming. Very nice drive.
