The Old Abe State Trail is a paved 19.5 mile trail connecting Lake Wissota State Park in Chippewa Falls and Brunet Island State Park in Cornell. This old railroad grade has been developed into a trail for bicyclists, snowmobilers, hikers, horseback riders * and in-line skaters. Enjoy a newly paved section of trail from Jim Falls to Cornell. A future link in 2014 to the Chippewa River Trail and Red Cedar Trail will make this a 70 mile trail system. The trail can be accessed at trail heads located on 97th Avenue (junction of Hwy S & Hwy O) in Chippewa Falls, Mill Yard Park in Cornell or at the Town Hall parking lot in Jim Falls. Duncan Creek Trail, a 5-mile trail located in Chippewa Falls, connects to the state trail northwest of CTH I and can be accessed at different points along the trail.
