Hickory Ridge Trail

If you’re looking for trails that are (literally) off the beaten path, check out Hickory Ridge, located within the Chippewa County Forest about 12 miles northeast of Bloomer and 20 miles north of Chippewa Falls. A 5K multiuse snowshoe and mountain-bike trail circles what is dubbed the “Great Swamp,” offering great views of scenery and wildlife. The Friends of Hickory Ridge also groom 27 kilometers (about 17 miles) of cross-country ski trails for both traditional and skating-style skiers. No fee, but donations are appreciated. No dogs allowed.
