The Buffalo River State Trail connects the towns of Fairchild and Mondovi along US 10 in scenic central Wisconsin. Although the rail-trail closely follows the Buffalo River, the winding waterway is mostly obscured by the dense woodlands, hills and wetlands that contribute to the area’s beauty.
The region was once home to a large population of bison—hence the river’s name. Now the communities of Eleva, Strum and Osseo dot the trail’s route, offering small town charm and places to rest.
Trail users should be aware that all horseback riders and cyclists age 16 or older need a Wisconsin state trail pass to use the trail.
Parking for the Buffalo River State Trail is available at the southern end of Marten Street in Mondovi and off North Street in Fairchild.
