    Go to CORBA: Chippewa Off Road Bike Association . There are a list of area trails there. If you have the time, my favorite in the immediate area is Hickory Ridge which is about 30 minutes north. In Eau Claire, there is Lowes Creek and Northwest Park. There is a relatively new system that is being worked on and improved in Chippewa called Area 178 which has some nice single track.

    Lowes Creek has great signage for anybody unfamiliar with the area.
    it's a challenge some of us are ultimately worthy of.

    Hickory Ridge is a good ride because can do one big loop compared to the other local trails. Now that it's getting colder the flies probably won't have their way with you.

    Yea Hickory is the way to go if you have the time. Keep in mind this weekend is a big race at those trails so if you do ride there on saturday there will be a few more people than normal. Or you could just go up and register for the race too....

    Hickory Ridge is bigger than it seems. It is rough and unkempt, which is cool just know what you're getting in to. Whatever clothes you wear will get worn. There is no tech.

    I went to Pinehurst in Eau Claire for the first time this summer. Its my go to trail if I only have a few hours to ride now. Pretty good flow trail installed there now.

    Pinehurst is a mile from my house and haven't made it there to try it out. I mainly ride at Northwest Park for some pretty technical climbs with lots of shorter punchy hills. I go to Lowes Creek for a mix of technicality and a more flowy feel. Hickory Ridge is a great place too, but it's 30 minutes from Eau Claire. I also rode Levi's mound in Neilsville-very cool views!! And 9 mile in Wausau which is pretty rough, natural style trails but a lot of fun! Highly recommend Northwest Park due it being a bit of a hidden gem that mostly locals ride there. Typically not barely anyone there, and CORBA and the volunteers tend to it regularly

    I haven't been out in a few weeks and am worried all trails will be really leafy. Is it safe to ride over all the leaves?

    The Creek isn't bad at all the leaves are packed down quite well. Northwest Park has a few areas that are covered and hard to see the trail but it's still fun to ride - they did blow some of the leaves off the trail. Pinehurst was fine also. Just drop tire pressure a bit to get added traction if that's an issue.
