Cedar Lake is part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, connecting with Theodore Wirth Park on the north end and Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles on the south end via the parkway system. The Cedar Lake Trail, on the north shore of the lake, serves as both a recreational trail and a link for non-motorized commuters to reach downtown Minneapolis. It has three separate paths: one for pedestrians, one for westbound bicyclists and skaters, and another for eastbound bicyclists and skaters. Other trails around the lake include separate bicycle and pedestrian trails on the west side of the lake, and the Kenilworth Trail a short distance off the east side of the lake. Cedar Lake is also popular for canoeing and swimming, with three official swimming beaches. Notable is "Hidden Beach", officially named East Cedar Beach, located on the northeast side of the lake.
