Foundation Trail

One of the beautiful assets in Black River Falls is the scenic 4.1-mile Foundation Trail that circles the city.  Many people have used the trail for walking, running and biking since it was completed in 2000.  The trail winds along the Black River, the Town Creek, near the Golf Course, through the Lunda Community Park, near other parks, past the high school, fair grounds, Pine View Care Center, and in the downtown area.  The 10-foot wide paved trail has two underpasses, lights, a bridge, benches, and picnic tables and is, as many people say, a breathtakingly beautiful journey around the city.  Click here for more information.
