Chippewa River State Trail Current conditions

The trail is groomed for snowmobiling from Porterville Road to Durand and connects to the Red Cedar State Trail for access to the Dunn County snowmobile trail system. Trails are generally open for snowmobiling when the Dunn County and Eau Claire County snowmobile trails are open. Please visit the Travel Wisconsin website [exit DNR] for more information.

The drinking fountain at Caryville is closed for the season. The bathrooms are closed at the Highway 85 wayside for the season.

The trail is open in the winter for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing (ungroomed), and other allowed uses. Bikers still need a trail pass in winter.

More information

Please report any downed trees, washouts or any other problems to the trail manager at 715-232-1242.

Bicyclists and in-line skaters 16 years or older must purchase a state trail pass. Passes can be purchased at the DNR Eau Claire office.
