We rode this trail on 7/6/18. Started at Centennial Park and rode north. This is a great trail to ride on. Outstanding bridges, very well maintained! We will be back to ride this one again. If we had more time we would have done 2 loops on this one.
Great warm weather ride. Most of the trail passes through a heavy tree canopy on a flat and level path.We started from the IDOT trail head off Dirksen Parkway and road east to Rochester. Just off this end of the trail is a great little place called Walnut St. Winery. Stopped in for a bit of wine and cheese before returning back down the trail.
Loved it!! Flat, tree lined, quiet, came into Farmersville from Waggoner, road around that town, their is a subway sandwich shop and a few bars that serve food...will definetely be back !! Riding to truck stop made this ride 4.99 miles each way...enjoy!
Very rough trail. Needs attention. Could be a great one, but lots of holes.
It was pretty clear that they will be expanding this trail beyond it's current run from Stuart Park to Centennial Park. Due to time constraints I rode from Stuart to Iles Ave. and back. There's a very slight uphill run over that length, but it's not at all noticeable because the trail is very smooth. There were a constant flow of trail users, but it didn't feel crowded at all. There seemed to be an above average number of dog walkers on the trail, but I chalked that up to the dog run located in Stuart Park.
I had spent the day in workshops and at the State Capitol, so this was a perfect way to burn off some energy before a long drive home. I was very glad I made the stop and will likely do this again when I'm in Springfield.
My husband and I came over from Decatur to try some new bike trails. We were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it. The tree cover is wonderful. We will drive over and ride it again. And we will recommend to others.
Another great ride and a job well done by the cities of Springfield and Chatham. Add the Wabash trail for a 22.5 mile out and back. A decent hill where the I 72 and train tracks bisect the ride. Pass through a short tunnel and about a .3 mile climb with a good gradient of 6 %. Flat out to Chat am with one road to cross that has signals and a bile repair stand just before the crossing. my favorite in the area of Central Illinois.
This trail is fairly flat but very well maintained. The City of Springfield really does a superb job with all of its bike paths and should be a model project for all Illinois communities.
A mix of open and tree covered canopy type cover, it has 4 or 5 road crossings which are low traffic excluding one that you have to pay close attention too.
Over all distance park to park is 12.25 miles, parking lot to parking lot. Mid way bench rest areas for those that desire a break.
I give it a A+ for its category of being flat.
This trail is the first trail my family ever rode on. We usually connect it with the Interurban Trail. It's a great trail to ride, walk, jog or other.
Flat, an all around great trail. Very well maintained and easy access too.
This is one of our favorite trails to ride. High recommended.
We decided to take a quick trip to Waggoner just to ride this trail.
It's not a bad trail, but be careful if you're on a road bike. Mountain bikes will do fine. Lots of gravel (and holes), brush along the way and it's not very well maintained but still very useable. There was lots of weeds/grass on the path.
Could use some TLC, but it's a nice flat path. Most of the trail was shaded. Short but nice. Easy ride for someone who don't have much time and wants to put in under 10 miles. (From one end to the other and back.)
This is a new trail for our family and has become a favorite of ours.
We start off near the Bunker Hill Road entrance and it's nice and flat ... until you get the last part near Stuart Park ... a few hills to deal with but not bad (nothing big) ... nice and steady and you can make it. Just don't take bikes too fast the down hill parts as there are quick, sharp turns to make.
Great area to walk or ride. Lovely bridges along the way.
Nice area, well maintained. Highly recommend to try.
Along our journey to ride the (t)rails ... This was another trail not far from us.
We start at the IDOT which takes you down a nice hill ... not to hard to get up the other side (except when coming back ... lol) but once you're up the trail is fairly flat and makes for a nice walking / riding trail. The first part of the trail is shaded really well and even has a nice cool tunnel you can catch cover under in a pitch if there is rain. (we got caught in the rain once.)
Well maintained and highly recommended.
