Buffalo River State Trail

Buffalo River State Trail

Eleva, Strum, and Osseo

Get Directions

This trail in west-central Wisconsin follows the scenic Buffalo River valley for 36.4 miles between Mondovi and Fairchild. In Trempealeau County the trail may be accessed in Eleva, Strum, or Osseo.

The river, which lends its name to the trail, was named by early French explorers. They called it Riviere de Beeufs for the many bison that once inhabited the area. The trail is built on a former railroad corridor and passes by farmlands, woods, hills and wetlands.

The trail surface is a combination of railroad ballast and limestone screenings, and is therefore used for walking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, horseback riding, and all terrain vehicle use.

The Trempealeau County Trails offer many variations of terrain and riding conditions ranging from easy, flat field roads to extremely steep, tight woodland trails to some large mud holes. We have over one hundred different private landowner properties that the trails run through. These trails have been known to be some of the most challenging and most exciting trails in the area. The trail rides are a great experience for new riders and the experienced rider.

There is an average of two trail rides a year, aone-day ride and a two-day ride, with the ability to contact the club and get permission to go out with a leader almost any weekend. The trail rides have over one hundred participants with varying abilities. The riders are split into groups according to the rider's ability and how fast he/she wants to ride.

The Trempealeau County ATV Association consists of around 40 members who create, clear, and maintain the trails all summer. This organization is non-profit; all the money made from the trail rides is either donated to a local church or is put into the maintenance of old trails and the creation of new trails.
