The Red Cedar State Trail is a 17 mile bike and recreation trail in northwestern WI. The trail is constructed on a retired rail bed and is paved with crushed stone. This ultra-scenic trail hugs the banks of the meandering Red Cedar River from Lake Menomin to the confluence of the Red Cedar and Chippewa Rivers. At the confluence a bridge crosses over the Chippewa and the Red Cedar Trail connects to the Chippewa River State Trail. These trails plus the Old Abe State Trail and the Duncan Creek Trail makes up an 80 mile network known as the Chippewa Valley Trail System.
