Old Abe State Trail

Old Abe State Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Wonderful views of the broad Chippewa River and woodland scenery permeate the Old Abe Trail. Along the way you’ll visit Brunet Island State Park and the interesting city of Chippewa Falls.

There is more to the Old Abe State Trail than just the trail itself. Brunet Island State Park is a gem of a park at the site of Frenchman Jean Brunet’s trading post. Miles of nature trails explore the lush island forest. It’s a great location to base your trail adventure from. A 1.2-mile paved trail link from the park to the town of Cornell and the Old Abe State Trail makes the experience seamless.

There are several county road crossings. Take care not to frighten horses on the adjacent riding path. Wisconsin State Trails have a carry-in/carry-out policy. Make provisions for carrying out any refuse. No trash receptacles are provided on-trail. The Wisconsin State Trail Pass is required for bicyclists, equestrians, and in-line skaters age sixteen and older"
