Stagecoach Trail is a historic route through northern Jo Daviess County and western Stephenson County, in the northwest of Illinois. The trail was a part of the larger Galena-Chicago trail that crossed almost the entire state.
Stagecoach Trail connects Galena and Lena through the communities of Scales Mound, Apple River, Warren and Nora. Stagecoach Trail runs through the third highest point in Illinois, Waddams Hill. It also runs close to the highest point in Illinois, Charles Mound, and the Illinois-Wisconsin border.
The route can be used as an alternative for U.S. Route 20 between Lena and Galena, through picturesque communities and landscapes.Stagecoach rides are offered at several points along the trail. Late 20th century, the communities on the Stagecoach Trail, from Lena through Scales Mound, held an annual Stagecoach Trail Festival in June.
This two lane road winds its way through the curves and rolling hills of this unglaciated area. Scenic farms dot the landscape and the route cruises near the highest point in Illinois.
