from WIS 81 to County J in the towns of Jordan and Adams.
Length: 4.6 miles
Skinner Hollow Road (R-94), offers scenic views of streams, valleys
and wooded areas. Rich in history, the road’s name comes from one of
the area’s first recorded lead prospectors, John B. Skinner. Various
prospect diggings or “badger holes” are located along the area’s
valley and many Native American artifacts have also been found. As the
road crosses Skinner Creek, it passes through an area that was once a
mill pond for one of the area’s early sawmills. Three cheese factories
once operated along the road, although only one remains as a
residence. The road overlooks prairie remnants, wetlands and rock
outcroppings that provide habitat for abundant wildlife from bald
eagles to sandhill cranes.
