Red Cedar State Trail Current conditions

Spring thaw is well on its way along the trail. The trail surface is made of limestone screenings that can be very soft and muddy until the surface dries out. We ask that visitors stay off the trail during this time period while the trail is soft, at least until staff can grade and pack the surface for summer use. It’s very difficult to grade out deep ruts and footprints and can be dangerous for other trail users.

The trail is open but the Depot and the Downsville Rest Area bathrooms are now closed for the season.

More information

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

Bikers and skiers age 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.
