State Trunk Highway 67 (often called Highway 67, STH 67 or WIS 67) is a Wisconsin state highway running from the Wisconsin/Illinois state line east of Beloit, Wisconsin north to U.S. Highway 151 east of Chilton, Wisconsin. With the inclusion of the new Oconomowoc bypass, Highway 67 is approximately 160 miles (260 km) in length.

Highway 67 meanders through much of Southeastern Wisconsin, passing through both the northern and southern units of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. It ends just south of the Killsnake State Wildlife Area in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.

Termini[edit]

The southern end of the route is located on the far east side of Beloit, WI at the Wisconsin/Illinois state line just east of Interstate 90/Interstate 39 where it becomes Illinois Route 75. Illinois Route 75 continues westward to South Beloit, Illinois and Freeport, Illinois.

The northern terminus of the route is at U.S. Highway 151 outside of Chilton, Wisconsin.

Historic sites[edit]

Highway 67 passes by Old World Wisconsin in Eagle, a "living" outdoor museum run by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. It also passes Road America in Elkhart Lake. Road America has been the host of many international racing events, from motorcycle to sports car to IndyCar races on its four-mile (6 km) long road course.
