Sunny trail

Went on this trail one sunny afternoon for two miles and found no shade. We just drove 30 miles south to Greenville and found a great paved 6 mile, shaded trail.

Tunnel Hill State Trail

From South to North on an out and back

May, 2021 by 7s5a692x35

This is a great trail that offers plenty of options for all level of cyclists. The trail is well maintained but there are short sections where gravel was put down versus crushed limestone and could be a challenge for those riding a bicycle with skinny tires. Water was available on the trail but all the air pumps at the trailheads were unusable due to issues with the pump heads but the restrooms were open. There is tree canopy along 95% of the trail which made all the difference on an unseasonably warm day for May. There was plenty of wildlife to be experienced especially as we launched back to our car at sunrise which included deer, box turtles, chipmunks, lizards and of course snakes which included some of the poisonous variety. We spent the night in Harrisburg and enjoyed a superb gastro experience at Morello's with an extensive menu and excellent wait staff. In my opinion, I would avoid the section of the trail from Harrisburg to El Dorado as it is poorly maintained, exposed to the sun and eventually turns into a road. Enjoy the Tunnel Hill Trail experience!

Tunnel Hill State Trail

amazing!

May, 2021 by brad.breems

My husband and I rode from New Burnside to 4 miles past Tunnel Hill—about 22 miles. The tunnel was cool, literally. Ride is Almost entirely wooded—saw a snake, possum, turtle, otter (I think) butterflies and birds. A great day!

The exact opposite of Pigeon Creek Trail - lots of street crossings

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

Typical city trail. Dead straight. Lots of street crossings. All at traffic lights or stop signs so low danger. Crossing at Walnut and 41 has a light, but it’s a 6 lane road so pretty busy. Trail was clean and well marked. Nice solar powered lights. Didn’t see any designated parking areas. Bike rack and repair stand at U-Haul at Riverside Dr so maybe can park there. I parked in a doctor’s office lot at Lincoln and S Keith. Empty at 5PM......bikin-mike Mar 2021

P.s. For a nicer ride, head about 15 minutes west to the USI-Burdette Trail. Not a rail trail so not on Traillink. 3 gorgeous miles of paved twisties and hills through woods, fields and ravines. Well worth the trip.

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Much better than I expected

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

I usually don’t expect much from city trails. Too many streets. This one was a pleasant surprise. Parked at Gavin Park and headed south. Some of the trail on the levee, some on creek side, some on city side. Some nice easy curves and hills over levee and under underpasses. Trail does go around some scrapyards. Some minor trash around the skatepark. Had about 3 miles without streets. Last couple miles downtown along river are next to street, but nice wide promenade separated by planters. Just have to watch out for all the walkers and the scooters. Lots of nice signs about the history of Evansville. I really enjoyed this ride. Probably the best city ride I’ve ever done. Thanks Evansville.....bikin-mike Mar 2021

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Rode this starting at Sunset Park, very scenic at the beginning. Nice the rest of the way. Garvin Park is very pretty, not many places for bathroom stops.

August 15, 2020 Karnak to El Dorado

August, 2020 by a3gw6ufgm3

Stayed at the Main Brothers camp ground in Karnak, IL which is about 2 miles from the official trail head. The primitive camp sites at main brothers were right next to the road. Full trail is 110 miles plus the two I road to the trail head. Trail is more rough than people say. Choose the right bike. Trail north of Harrisburg is single track so 15 miles round trip was slow going and full sun. Bring water but know there are a lot of water stops. Get food in Harrisburg if you ride that far. There is only one true tunnel so know that and expect to enjoy a lot of nature.
