Dedicated on August 5, 2000, the Green Diamond Trail, the first bicycling/pedestrian trail in Montgomery County, is an easy, flat ride. At 4-miles long, the trail is paved and free from motorized traffic, making it an enjoyable path for bicylists, walkers and runners.

Farmersville and Waggoner are just west of Interstate 55 and about 30 miles south of Springfield, Illinois.
