Red Cedar State Trail Current conditions

Conditions as of Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2017:

The warm weather will put a damper on skiing. Park staff recommend not skiing on the trail until we get colder weather. Any activity on the trail during warm weather will cause damage that will be hard for groomers to fix.

If you're looking for an alternative for outdoor recreation, put on some snowshoes and try the snowshoe section of the trail, or enjoy some time at the nearby state wildlife areas - a variety of waterfowl are piling into open water along the Red Cedar River.

Skiers 16 years or older must purchase a state trail pass. Please use a self-registration station to purchase trail passes if the Depot Visitor Center is closed. Self-registration stations are available at the trailhead/depot area and the parking area in Downsville.

More information

The restroom facility in the Downsville parking area is closed for the season.

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