Everything from the IL boarder to Madison is cornfield. The southern most logging/fire roads in WI are near Black River WI, way northwest of Madison. They are about as challenging as any gravel road. But still scenic and might give you some pinstripes. You will need to drive up to Crivitz WI (Nicolet National Forest
) or the U.P. to find anything worth doing.
You might want to spend some time on Google earth and look for high tension power lines that run towards Chicago... they sometimes have unmaintained access/maintenance roads that follow them. Or just hop on any of Illinois DOT roads - those are unmaintained and bumpy.
