A scenic drive in the western part of the state

January 23, 2022

A nice drive, with lots of trees and hills, from Mount Carroll to Elizabeth, IL where you can stop at Cajun Jack’s Bar & Grill for some food before deciding where to go next. You can continue on up US-20 to Galena, or back track to Albrecht Rd, and turn right onto S Derinda Road, which becomes Scenic Ridge Road, and follow it south into Savanna. Hard to go wrong either direction.

Drive 26 mi, about 33 minutes.
