      Red Cedar State Trail (Wisconsin) Chippewa River State Trail
    The Red Cedar Trail is 14 miles long, and runs from Menomonie to the confluence of the Red Cedar River and Chippewa River.  The northern end of the Red Cedar Trail passes by wooded bluffs.  Farther south the landscape changes to marshes and farmland. At  the south end of the trail is the Dunnville Wildlife Area, a floodplain of river bottoms and restored prairies. There are eleven railroad bridges on the trail, and for the most part, the trail follows along side of the Red Cedar River.

  The Empire in Pine Lumber Museum in Downsville gives a look into the history of  the lumbering era of of Dunn County.

   An 860 foot railroad trestle provides the connecting link from the Red Cedar Trail to the Chippewa River Trail.  Traveling east to Meridean, the trailway passes through prairies and oak savannas. From there, the trail travels through mostly undeveloped river land to Caryville. From Downsville to Caryville, a distance of  19 miles, there are no stores or restaurants. The Eastern end of the trail ends at Phoenix Park in downtown Eau Claire.  At the railroad trestle a new section was added to the Chippewa Trail which runs SW to Durand.  The Chippewa River Trail is now close to 30 miles long.  Eventually the CRST will be connected to the Old Abe State Trail. Once completed, this trail system will be 75 miles in length and connect  Menomonie and Durand to Cornell.
