Welcome To The Chippewa River State Trail.
you enjoy bicycling, walking, running, in-line skating, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling, then the Chippewa River State
Trail is the place for you.
The trail is between Eau Claire and Durand in west central Wisconsin. Much of it lies
on the bed of the old Milwaukee Road railroad line that was built in 1882. The railroad line was abandoned in 1980 and is
now part of the Wisconsin state trails network. The overall trail is relatively flat and is perfect for all sorts of
activity for all age groups.
This trail is one of three state regional trails that make up the Chippewa Valley Trail System. It is already connected
to the Red Cedar State Trail and will eventually be connected to the Old Abe State Trail. Once completed, this trail system
will be approximately 70 miles in length and connect together the cities of Menomonie, Durand, Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls
regional trail is not currently connected between the cities of Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls at this time. Over
the last few years a number of addtional trails were completed within the cities of Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and Altoona.
Please check back later on this site for future updates on any trail developments in the area.
