Tower Ridge is the largest cross-country ski trail complex in both Eau Claire County and in west central Wisconsin. It is located on Eau Claire County forestland in the town of Seymour off CTH L. It has approximately 12 miles of trail with terrain of varying degrees of difficulty offering something for all levels of skiers. The ski trails include wooded, rolling terrain, and are groomed and tracked on the highest priority basis of the four ski trails offered by the county. The recreation area includes a Chalet with flush toilets, additional pit toilets, approximately 3 km of lighted trails and a snowshoe trail adjacent to but separate from the lighted ski trails. Tower Ridge requires a winter vehicle entrance pass. Fees are $60 for an annual pass and $6 for a daily pass and are required January thru March and December of each year. Both daily and annual vehicle passes can be purchased on a self-served basis at the trailhead. Annual winter passes can also be purchased from the County Parks and Forest office in the Agriculture and Resource Center, 227 1ST STREET WEST, ALTOONA.
