Welcome to Menomonie, Wisconsin. We're located in western Wisconsin, one hour east of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Our area is blessed with many lakes and rivers, miles of biking, skiing and snowmobiling trails, and hundreds of acres of beautiful woodlands. Home to the University of Wisconsin-Stout, we offer many cultural opportunities. The Menomonie area offers a strong business environment, great schools, and lots of recreational opportunities.

Menomonie is the starting point for a beautiful 14-mile bike ride along the Red Cedar State Trail. This limestone-surfaced trail runs along the Red Cedar River from Menomonie to the Chippewa River, where it connects with the Chippewa River Trail. Keep watch for eagles, herons and other birds as you pass sandstone bluffs, prairies, wetlands and wooded areas. There are picnic areas along the trail, and a visitor's center located along Highway 29 in Menomonie. The Menomonie area also offers miles of country roads fit for biking.

The Menomonie area offers many hiking trails. Check out the 706 wooded, hilly acres at Hoffman Hills State Recreational Area just outside of Menomonie. The park offers 9 miles of trails of varying difficulty. Climb the 60 foot high observation tower to get an unparalleled view of the countryside surrounding Menomonie. Birds and other wildlife abound. Be sure to check out the 15 acres of prairie restoration, and hike the 1-mile wetland trail. There is also excellent skiing and snowshoeing. This recreational area offers 8 miles of trails groomed exclusively for cross-country skiing in both traditional-stride and skate-skiing. The terrain ranges from easy to difficult. Hoffman Hills offers pine and hardwood forest scenery and great views.

Dunn County has 320 miles of snowmobile trails. Menomonie is also home to the WSA Pro-Ice Challenge on Lake Menominie the first weekend of February. Come to Menomonie for this exciting event and see the best snowmobilers in the world race at top speeds on the ice. Located in Menomonie, a city of 14,000, UW-Stout is surrounded by Wisconsin's natural beauty. To those who know it well, the UW-Stout campus is a place of beauty, history and character.
