UPDATE (Thursday, April 26, 2023) -- Effective May 1, 2023, at 12pm, the Lowes Creek County Park Single-Track Trails will be re-opened. The Eau Claire County Parks & Forest Department continues to remind folks to limit use of the trails when it is raining or has recently rained.
The Eau Claire County Parks & Forest Department announced the closure of all single-track mountain bike/snowshoe trails at Lowes Creek County Park on March 23. The tracks will remain closed until further notice.
The narrower trails are closed due to soft ground according to the department's press release.
The wider, numbered trails that were groomed for cross-country skiing will remain available for public use for hiking, mountain biking, and pet walking.

Read the full press release below:
“The Eau Claire County Parks & Forest Department announces that all single-track mountain bike/snowshoe (named) trails at Lowes Creek County Park are closed to all uses due to soft ground. Soft ground makes the soil more prone to erosion with continued use at this time. The single-track bike trails are the narrower (named) trails that include snowshoe trails, mountain bike, and hiking trails (other than the ski trails). The wider (numbered) trails that were groomed for cross-country skiing will remain open for hiking, mountain biking, and pet walking at this time.
The single-track (named) trails will remain closed to all uses until further notice. The department will announce when the trails reopen after conditions dry out.
Pets must be kept on a leash no longer than 8 feet and under the owner’s control at all times.”
