Bald eagle sightings are common throughout the year. Great river scenery and an 860-foot-long trestle are highlights of the trail, along with the historic city of Menomonie, two quaint small river villages, and a ghost town. Surface: Crushed limestone with wood-planked bridges; groomed and tracked for cross-country skiing from Menomonie to Downsville.

My husband and I went on this trail..it was beautiful! Most of the trail follows the wide Red Cedar River. It is a smooth, crushed limestone path and at times when it goes downhill, there is smooth asphalt in those areas. It starts in Menomonie, Wisconsin and ends in Dunnville which is 14.5 miles down. This trail is definately worth the visit!! There is flushable toilet facilities as you start on the trailhead and another somewhere on the trail. The trail does connect to the Chippewa Trail at the end of the 14.5 miles...be prepared to bring water bottles, etc...as there is no bathrooms, etc..on this long 22 mile stretch..this trail is asphalt, the gravelly kind which is not suitable for rollerblading, but biking only.
