Looking for a good run (or bike) around Eau Claire? This is the the place. It is really the gem of the Chippewa Valley. It meanders around the river and downtown. Across bridges and through parks. It's not as well-marked as it could be, which makes it difficult for first timers but it's easy to figure out.

Beautiful area to explore and enjoy the beauty of nature, especially during autumn when leaves change.

Four of us rode our mountain bikes from Eau Claire to just past Carryville. Very few walkers, joggers or fellow bikers on the trail. We rode over bridges, past beautiful farms and in the woods. It's fairly flat so it's an easy ride.

Beautiful walk along the river from the university of Eau Claire. This time of year, with the changing of season, the colours are something else. Plenty of cycling, walking, jogging, it has it all.

This is overall a very nice ride. If you ride past or start your ride from the town of Caryville on Hwy 85, you will find a very nice, quaint convenience store to buy your forgotten sun screen or a cold drink at the end of your ride. The parking area at Caryville has a drinking fountain, along with clean... More

This is a great trail that is being updated and well-maintained. I trained for the Fall50 Ultramarathon in Door County here and would run it from northern Eau Claire to Durand. There a little towns along the way and a few bathrooms and water stops. Bring bug spray!! I loved reading the little historical marker signs too. Can't wait to... More

The Chippewa River Bike trail is a beautiful place to bike. I live close to it and love to go biking there at least every other two days. There is miles and miles of paved road. They also have rest stops along the way.

The Eau Claire area is a hidden gem when it comes to bike trails, including the Chippewa River Trail. Nice trails, neat views, and close to the amenities of a larger town. Be sure to check out Phoenix Park and the downtown area, and ride both loops within Eau Claire -- the one via Carson Park and the other along... More

Nice scenic trail that goes along the river. Paved and nice to ride a bike, run or walk next to the river.
