The Wausau area has miles and miles of great walking and hiking trails, offering scenic views and plenty to explore.

Rib Mountain State Park

One of the oldest rock formations on earth, Rib Mountain State Park stands proudly in the middle of Wausau/Central Wisconsin. With over 1,500 acres, the park boasts a well-maintained network of hiking and nature trails throughout the wooded area. The nature trails meander through the park’s rocky outcroppings, offering fun places to climb or sit and enjoy the views. For an overview of the trail system, use the Rib Mountain Summer Recreation Map or visit the Rib Mountain State Park website.

Nine Mile County Forest Recreation Area

Nine Mile County Forest Recreation Area is marked and mowed during the summer months to provide over 20 miles of varying terrain that is shared with mountain bikers and horse riding enthusiasts. Trail fees are required for biking at Nine Mile. For an overview of the trail system, use our Nine Mile Summer Recreation Map or visit the Marathon County website.

Dells of the Eau Claire County Park

The Dells of the Eau Claire County Park is one of the special jewels in the Marathon County park system, with ancient volcanic rock palisades and potholes carved in the rock by the falling water creating a unique place at the dells and gorge. Over five miles of trails run along both sides of the Eau Claire River.

Big Eau Pleine County Park

Offering over 10 miles of trails shared with mountain bikers and horse riding enthusiasts, the Big Eau Pleine County Park is a great hiking spot with views of the Big Eau Pleine Flowage.

The Andrew Warren Historic District & East Hill

Located on the northeast edge of downtown Wausau, the Andrew Warren Historic District and East Hill is a great place to walk while taking in the charming and historic architecture of Wausau. The East Hill also provides some serious cardio if you are so inclined!
