Red Cedar State Trail Current conditions

Conditions as of Wednesday, April 2, 2014:


The season is beginning to change and spring is creeping in. The snowmobile season has officially been closed. During the spring season it’s highly recommended not to use the trail for biking or walking. The trail can easily be damaged during this sensitive time period. Maintenance staff are better able to prep the trail for the bike season without deep bike ruts or foot prints.

Bikers 16 years or older must buy a state trail pass before using the trail. Trail users may buy trail passes at the self-registration stations in Menomonie or in Downsville if no trail attendant is present.

Passes can also be purchased at the Menomonie Chamber of Commerce.

Please report any downed trees, washouts or any other problems to the trail manager at 715-232-1242.


A huge influx of birds are appearing along the rivers including a variety of grebes, loons, trumpeter swans, and other waterfowl.

More information

The Depot Visitors Center in Menomonie is generally closed during the winter season. The center maybe open to purchase passes during certain times when the trail attendant is present.   Restrooms and drinking fountain at Downsville are closed for the season.
