State Trunk Highway 80 (abbreviated as Highway 80, STH 80 or WIS 80) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It runs north–south in southwest and west central Wisconsin from Pittsville, near the geographic center of the state to the Illinois border near Hazel Green.

Route description[edit]

Going south from Pittsville, the terrain is flat until reaching New Lisbon. South of New Lisbon, it enters the driftless area with many rolling hills and curves. The drive is slow, but beautiful. The entire route north of Monfort is largely forested, interspersed with small fields. South of Monfort, the terrain remains hilly, but the land has less forests and more hills.
