Things to See & Do Orchard Area Whether you’re visiting in the spring, summer or fall, don’t miss the beautiful orchard district in southern Chippewa County. Approximately four square miles of rolling hills come alive with apple blossoms in the spring, wine in the summer and of course apples in the fall. Seven apple orchards make up this area 8 miles east of Chippewa Falls. Each orchard offers something unique to travelers from near and far. Fresh apple pies, cider doughnuts, gift shops, wine and fresh pressed cider are among the treasures to be found. Orchards are open seasonally. Reference pages 8 & 9 for more information.

Yellowstone Trail The Yellowstone Trail was the first transcontinental automobile highway in the United States. In 1912 it began as an effort to provide good roads from South Dakota to the great tourist attraction, the Yellowstone Park. It soon expanded to become a road running through all of the 13 northern tier states, “from Plymouth Rock to Puget Sound.” The trail was marked by bright yellow markers with a black arrow. Today, thanks to the efforts of Chippewa County and the Chippewa County Historical Society Historic Marker Committee, the same Yellowstone Trail logo signs point the way through Chippewa County. For more on the Yellowstone Trail or to request a stampable passport, visit www.yellowstonetrail.org.

Lakes and Streams Chippewa County has 449 lakes totaling 20,027 acres and ranging from 1 to 6,300 acres. Lake Wissota, the largest lake, is an impoundment of the Chippewa River east of Chippewa Falls. Although many of the smaller lakes do not support much of a fishery, they offer solitude and serenity for those wanting to get away. Thirty-eight lakes have developed public access and most are listed in the table on the opposite page. Many lakes provide excellent angling opportunities. The Chippewa River and its flowage offer some of the best and diverse angling opportunities in the county.

MAJOR TROUT STREAMS OF CHIPPEWA COUNTY

Chippewa County also provides 81 miles of trout fishing opportunities in 24 classified trout streams. Seventy-seven miles of these streams are Class 1 trout water. No trout stocking is done in these streams since most support adequate natural reproduction.
