biking paradise

Still one of the nicest trails in the region. Beautiful canopy of trees embrace the paved trail. Friendly critters abound.. rabbits, grouse, deer, and even people on occasion.

It gets pretty remote, so make sure if you are biking that you bring plenty of water. It is a great day trip, and the trails are easy for the whole family

The Chippewa River is a great river for a canoeing or kayaking trip. It is wider than the Red Cedar in Menomonie, WI. A good place to enter and park for free is by Hobbs Ice Arena. I saw lots of wildlife on this trip including a bald eagle, hawk, family of ducks, and fish. It was much more desolate... More

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
