Chippewa River State Trail Current conditions

Trail is open but all the facilities have closed for the season including Highway 85 Wayside, Caryville, and Meridean. Parking is still available at Caryville and Meridean but Highway 85 Wayside is closed. We’re already getting dustings of snow along the trail and most of the leaves have dropped off.
