CannonTracks - West Central WI - Buffalo Co Earpopper

This scenic tour involves the Mississippi River and the adjacent bluffs and valleys in Buffalo and Pepin Counties in Wisconsin. The track begins right across the river from Winona, MN. This route will wear the sides of your tire tread and will pop your ears a few times as you travel up and down the bluffs. I spend a few months a year in this area on outdoor pursuits. Watch for deer and curves that sometimes turn sharper than you do. It runs about 180 miles but takes a little longer than you'd expect.
Things to see/do:
-Stop at the Monarch Public House in Fountain City. It is in a book of the 50 best taverns in Wisconsin.
-Enjoy the ride across the tops of Fountain City Ridge and Canada Ridge. Spectacular vistas looking down the coulees.
-Near Cochrane you will pass the Prairie Moon Museum. Stop and enjoy the curiosities.
-Ride a shore road through Buffalo City.
-Take a side trip to the top of the bluff at Buena Vista park in Alma. Fantastic views up and down the river.
-While in Alma stop at the observation platform to observe locking operations for boats and barges.
-Pier 4 Café in Alma serves a great breakfast.
-Roll through the hills along the Chippewa River. Enjoy some scenic views.
-Ride the hills and valleys east of the Mississippi River. Enjoy the scenic streams, farms, and wooded hills. You will likely see deer and turkeys and an occasional bald eagle.
-Stop at the Waumandee House for lunch.

Files Available for Download Again

These tracks are now available again for download. Many thanks to fellow ADVer deputyjones who offered some server space.

Go to http://dsam-mi.org/GPS_Files/ and you will see a directory of folders that contain the files. You should be able to choose the proper directory without much trouble. The individual files will have names that are the same as or similar to the file names listed when the files were hosted on ADV.

The files are listed as .zip files. If you left click/open the file, you will open it in your computer's temporary internet directory. Depending on how you have your computer set up, clicking on the .gpx will open the file with Mapsource so you can look at it. Remember, it is in your temporary internet files.

To save the file in one of your neatly filed directories, "left click/save" or "right click/save target as" and put it where you want to keep it.

Some of the files have an associated spreadsheet file with points of interest (Black Hills, Pony Express, etc). Same procedures apply.

Happy to have quick and easy access to these files again.
