Shooting Star State Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Shooting Star State Trail is currently 19 miles long, an 8-foot-wide asphalt path from Le Roy (east) to Rose Creek (west). It follows an abandoned railroad bed of the Milwaukee Road, which once stretched from the Midwest through the Rocky Mountains. The scenic trail includes bike racks and rest benches in key places along the route.

There are plans to extend the trail farther west to Austin.

Parking and Trail Access

There is plenty of parking at the trailheads in both Le Roy and Adams, with restrooms and covered picnic areas. Taopi also has a restroom and picnic table with parking.
