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. Six 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 current page for more information.

Silent Sports Chippewa County provides visitors and residents various areas to enjoy silent sports throughout all seasons of the year.

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, Massachusetts to Puget Sound on the Pacific Ocean.” The trail was marked by bright yellow markers with a black arrow. The Yellowstone Trail attracted so many visitors to the state that when the highway department numbered state roads in 1918, the Yellowstone Trail and its yellow road markers were allowed to remain. 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. Make plans to travel the trail and request your Yellowstone Trail Passport to get stamped along the way. For a passport, a map or more information on the Yellowstone Trail visit www.chippewacounty.com.
