School Grove Road in the town of Little River.
Length: 2.3 miles
R-109 is referred to by some local residents as “Wisconsin’s
Everglades” because the road runs through a large complex of coastal
wetlands that ultimately connect to the Oconto Marsh. Along some parts
of the route, travelers will see majestic cattails that line both
sides of the road, as well as blue flag iris, swamp milkweed, marsh
fern and lowland grasses. In the middle of the route, the trees lining
the road form a graceful canopy that arches over the road. R-109 also
has a century farmstead visible from the road.
