Forest County is where the Rustic Roads series first ventures off pavement. Both R34 and R118 have significant gravel segments.
Rustic Road 34, I think, is the more technical. As an old logging road tucked into a corner of Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, it feels quite remote. But after making it down the trail, you come back to WI-55, which is part of another WisDOT program - the Scenic Byways.
While R118's gravel doesn't feel as technical, there is a lot more of it. I didn't realize until piecing the recording together that I was on it for nearly an hour. As for the pavement ... I hope the music accompaniment livens it up a bit. In my opinion, use that section to the Marinette County border, where County C becomes much more fun. And then turn south and enjoy County F too. ;)
