Whether you’re looking for flowing backwoods scenery or tight, technical singletrack, we’ve got a trail for that. CORBA has partnered with Eau Claire County, Chippewa County, and Barron County landowners to build and maintain miles and miles of offroad fun for Chippewa Valley mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners and snowshoers. Drop into the trail system links below for info, maps, directions and a sneak preview of the Chippewa Valley’s newest singletrack trails.

Lowes Creek County Park

Eau Claire County Park, within the city, offers twisty singletrack, quick climbs and fast sections. Home to the WORS Firecracker mountain bike and trail run races, the Powder Keg fat-bike and snowshoe races, and the Fall Back Blast Trail Run races.

Hickory Ridge

The Chippewa County forest offers a technical mountain biking experience. The absolute wilderness  lets riders experience adventure through steep hills and valleys, over rocky terrain and circling glacial lakes.  Home to the Deer Fly Chase mountain bike race.

Northwest Community Park

City of Eau Claire community park that brings mountain biking to the northwest side of town. A true, hidden treasure.

Otter Creek Park

Altoona’s Otter Creek Park features singletrack under full tree canopy.  You can be sure to escape the hot summer sun at this sweet local riding spot.  It is also extremely fat-bike friendly as the terra-firma seems to be on the loamy, if not somewhat sandy, side of the spectrum.  Plenty of opportunity for jumps, drops, climbs and a few log pile crossings.  A popular wildlife area for those “city-critters”.
