Chippewa Falls’ Duncan Creek Trail—also known as the Duncan Creek Parkway Trail—is a scenic loop around the city. While the vast majority of the trail is off-road, some portions are actually signed on-road routes on low-stress roads or bike lanes with adjacent sidewalks.
The trail provides a critical connection between the city and the Old Abe State Trail, which extends north nearly 20 miles to the small city of Cornell. While those more interested in a scenic ride or run might want to take the longer trail, the Duncan Creek Trail does offer its own fair share of scenery. In particular, the segment between State Route 124/Bridge Street and Pumphouse Road features amazing views of the Chippewa River.
Beer aficionados will want to visit the original Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company brewery, located where the trail moves away from Jefferson Avenue. Stop in for a free tour and visit the adjacent Leinie Lodge for samples. Those with children might want to visit the Irvine Park Zoo instead; the entrance is also along the trail on Jefferson Avenue (just north of the brewery).
Parking for the Duncan Creek Trail is available at the lot for Chippewa County’s Riverview Reserve on Beach Drive. Additional parking can be found on city streets.
