Description

The Red Cedar Trail will create an all-new trail experience at Squaw Creek County Park - a family friendly singletrack loop tied directly to existing park infrastructure. The targets of this loop are new trail users, lacking the confidence, fitness, or skill, to consider wandering completely out of sight of familiar surroundings, such as youth on strider bikes or the older fitness walkers resorting to walking along the park roads. The concept alignment, mirroring the Ski Lodge Road loop, balances forest and meadow sections. When crossing meadows, the concept stays high on the hill to provide views over the newly restored prairie wetland. Forest segments "play" with the landscape's contour. Suggestions to configure the loop to cross the road are not made lightly, but such an alignment has the potential to create a more sustainable trail while respecting the northern slopes hosting winter sports activities. The Red Cedar Loop and Connector will be approximately 1.6 miles in length.
