“New Surface - Great Ride!!!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I have ridden the Old Abe from Chippewa Falls to Cornell before, and the area between Chippewa Falls and Jim Falls needed replacement after the power company finished tower installations next to the trail. The surface is now new, so the surface is fantastic for runners, cyclists and roller blades. Portions of the trail are nicely shaded; north of Jim Falls and to Cornell. The rest of the trail is pretty flat and runs through beautiful countryside!! I highly recommend the ride for new and experienced riders. All users of the trail follow good trail etiquette! Note that Wisconsin state trail passes for those 16 years or older are needed. Annual passes are $20; day passes are $4.

“Ride it!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The trail is newly resurfaced in 2012/2013 and in the best of condition. If you get to the north end you can have ice cream at Dylan's Dairy homemade by the proprietor from the 6 cows SHE milks every day!

“Northern half of trail”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We biked from Jim Falls to Brunet Island State Park during peak fall colors, and the scenery was gorgeous. The trail was recently repaved, so is nice and smooth. We love that it is paved, and only crosses a few roads. It is very peaceful.

“Easy bike trail”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Nice paved trail. Shaded most of the route. Paid a 4 dollar fee per person to use. Well maintained. Would be beautiful in fall with the color change. Flat grade.

“Nice change”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We love to bike and enjoyed this trail as unlike so many Wisconsin trails it is actually paved. It has fairly decent views, and was not too crowded. It does however require a paid trail wheel pass, yet too, many Wisconsin trails do.
