The nation's largest connected bicycle trail system. 382 miles of paved county back roads, 11 cities and villages connect to form a network of 14 loop options. The county's back roads have very low vehicle traffic, typically only 3 cars per hour. Hundreds of friendly area residents offer assistance to bicyclist enroute. These trail stewards are designated by blue bicycle signs posted at the roadside. This non-glaciated region along the Mississippi river is ideal for family and sport road bicyclists. A pocket size brochure details the 14 loops, elevations, and descriptions of each of the rides. For a brochure please sign our guest book at the top of the homepage, or go to www.ridebctc.com for more information and downloadable maps.

Buffalo River State Trail

Buffalo River State Trail

Eleva, Strum, and Osseo
(608) 534-6409

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.
