CEDAR RIVER STATE WATER TRAIL

River-level information for the Cedar River State Water Trail now is available online by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Read more about the data here. Officially launched in 2012, the Cedar River State Water Trail runs for 25 river miles from Mower County 2 near Lansing through Austin to the Minnesota-Iowa border. Cedar River Watershed District led the effort in 2011 to get the Cedar River designated by the state Legislature as a DNR state water trail. For more, check out the DNR website devoted to the Cedar River State Water Trail.
