The popular Red Cedar State Trail has lured many with its peaceful surroundings for decades. Now the great stressed iron bridge at the south end joins it with the new Chippewa River State Trail forming a continuous route of 37 miles between the cities of Menomonie and Eau Claire; plus a 6.5 mi extension of Chippewa River State Trail past Red Cedar junction SW to Durand. In winter, seven miles of the Red Cedar State Trail are groomed for skiing from Menomonie to Downsville. Snowshoeing is permitted on the ungroomed section from Downsville to the intersection of the Chippewa River State Trail.
