Constitution Trail & Historic Route 66 Trail

Nice general purpose trail

October, 2023 by ielpmike

This is a real nice trail, but at times it’s more like a sidewalk than a bike trail. There are a lot of pedestrians and many many crosswalks. The trail ends in several different places so it’s a little bit confusing. This is more of a trail system than it is one trail. The trails are in pretty good shape but some of the more lonely stretches there was some broken glass. lonely stretches, have broken glass and things on them so you really need to know where you are going.

Stevens Creek Bikeway

Beautiful trail

September, 2023 by cariesmith

Love this trail. We frequently drive over from Springfield to ride this trail. The hills and curves through the woods and along side the creek make it so much more interesting than a flat, rail trail. And hooking up in Fairview Park gives you several options for more riding and having a picnic lunch. And all of the trails beginning in Fairview Park are interesting and still in pretty good shape.

Covington Circle Trail

Great Biking Trail

July, 2023 by jim_harding45

Wife and I started at the park and cycled down to the end (just south west of downtown), and made our way back. There was a lot of elevation on the return trip for sure, but we’ll worth it. Despite asphalt streaks popping up along the majority of the trail, it is still a solid bike trail to hit in the area. They need to finish the trail to make it a full circle which should make it around six miles in length. It’s a great trail that meanders through some great scenery.


Constitution Trail & Historic Route 66 Trail

Great Afternoon Ride

April, 2023 by bob.kerestes

Rode this trail yesterday from central Bloomington to where it ends north of Towanda. Trail is in very good condition and easy to ride. I felt safe along the trail - it is far enough away from the old Route 66 Hwy. which was a plus! There are ample stopping/resting points along the way if needed. Now this trail needs to be completed all the way to Lexington and northward from there! ¿

Amazing Trail

Amazing path and trees, best foliage from late spring to early fall

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

First longer ride of 2023

April, 2023 by shellijennings

Nice way to spend a beautiful day biking 16+ miles on an asphalt trail. They are currently doing work putting in new telephone poles.

Village of Rantoul Trail

Pretty Nice

March, 2023 by olddude33

I have ridden all the trails (being from Rantoul) and most are pretty nice. The section on the old Chanute AFB is interesting however that section of the trail is getting in poor shape with lots of upheaved concrete and overgrowth to maneuver around.

Kickapoo Rail Trail

Enjoyed a beautiful ride through fields East of Urbana, IL to St. Joseph. Paved approaches to road crossings and nice surfaces for the trail. Multiple bike stations for minor repaira and free at the East end at the Casey's.

Constitution Trail & Historic Route 66 Trail

Great trail!

July, 2022 by kelseyosterloo

This trail is in great shape. Easy riding and cute little photo ops along the way. Another plus-this is close enough to hop on from the Constitution Trail.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

wonderful trail

July, 2022 by deb.hutti

100 percent ashphalt! Straight with nice towns on either end. New bathroom stop 1/2 way. Great length and a nature center at one end. Worth the effort.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

very nice functional trail but nothing extraordinary about it

June, 2022 by bicyclegary_tl

If you happen to be in Charleston IL then definitely visit it, but don’t go out of your way to visit it It is in very excellent condition, 95% paved despite the photo on this website Straight as an arrow, one slight turn in 11 miles. Very nice nature center about 3 miles from end in Mattoon Il.
