Beautiful area. We love hiking along the river. Quite a few trails here, easy to moderate. Everyone we met on the trail so nice and friendly. Would definitely go back and explore some more.

Loved our bike ride along the Chippewa River Trail. Very well groomed. Good for folks of all skill level. The scenery was a very pleasant surprise. A step above what we are used to in the SW corner of the state.
