Great for riding and many miles are paved. I believe you can go about 12 miles out of Eau Claire to the south before pavement stops. The trail extends to the north and with a short traverse on roads you will connect with the Old...More

Peaceful trail by the river. Lots of access points downtown. Signage could be improved. Wish I had my bicycle with me because the trail is wide and nicely paved.

Beautiful trail in any season to run( or walk). The river scenery constantly changes with the seasons. Wildlife is frequently spotted. Oh, and it goes by some great coffee shops! In summers you may see some tube floaters going by. Just a great natural resource...More
