Scenery You'll See
This route is for the adventurers who want to see a nice little surprisingly hilly area of north-central Illinois. The drive will take you through thick forests and some deep ravines. The views along the path are especially beautiful in the fall when leaves change color. If you enjoy scenic drives and ever find yourself in northern or central Illinois, be sure to check this route out!
Towns/Cities You'll Pass By/Through
North Utica and Ottawa are the main towns on this drive. Both are nice towns offering plenty of places to stop, grab a bite to eat, and shop around.
Attractions & Points-of-Interests Along the Way
With lots of recreational opportunities, Starved Rock State Park is the best stop along this route. Here you'll find a nice lodge, hiking trails, camping sites and boat access. You can also enjoy activities such as fishing, picnicking, history, horseback riding, and sports events. The signs in the park tell a fascinating story about how the park got its name.

Attraction or Point-of-Interest recommendation: If you are in the area to do this scenic drive you should check out Buffalo Rock State Park as it is just across the river and not hard to get to. The land that the park sits on has a lot of historic significance with French Traders using it to trade back in the 1800s and a setting where native Americans gathered and built a fort of their own. It sits on the northern shores of the river.
