Regional Trails

The cities of Eau Claire, Lake Hallie and Chippewa Falls are located in Western Wisconsin. They are all three situated along the Chippewa River.

There are two major Wisconsin State Trails that extend out from these cities, the Chippewa River State Trail and the Old Abe State Trail. There is also the Buffalo River State Trail that is located 16 miles to the south of Eau Claire.

The cities also have paved recreational trails located along the river, running through local parks or alongside major roadways. These are trails for walking, running and bike riding.
