Vandalia Trail

I love this trail. It isn't over populated. Tree lined. Asphalt is in great condition. The paved Amo to Coatesville section is 4 miles. Mostly flat, easy ride.

Vandalia Trail

Vandalia Trail Greencastle to Amo Indiana

July, 2020 by ardeano1764

Wife and I went the day after strong storms. One tree down across the trail but we got around it ok. The first part was chipped rock and the second asphalt. I was riding a Trek Domane road bike which handled it well and wife riding a Specialized hybrid that went through without any trouble whatsoever.
Benches ever so often and it was shaded very well with some short stretches of open sky.
Loved this trail.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

I fully agree with other reviews great trail. Thanx to those responsible for getting it paved. All in sun however, might want cloudy day. Easy 20+ mile ride if you want, goes into 2 towns for food also.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

Charleston Illinois to Mattoon Illinois

July, 2020 by ardeano1764

This trail used to have some gravel but no longer..., it’s all asphalt now. It is a nice little jaunt to Mattoon and back. There is no shade except under I-57 near Mattoon. Wildflowers are beautiful. There are access points from the trail to the Charleston Country Club ( golf course) and Douglas/Hart Nature Center just outside of Mattoon. Port

This trail has been greatly improved and is now asphalt from Mattoon to Charleston.

National Road Heritage Trail (Terre Haute)

Heritage trail

We rode east from Fruitridge and Locust street. It is an easy ride. We are 70 and had no issues. Lots of shady areas. About 7.47 mile round trip.

Vandalia Trail

I was not happy with the 2 Posts method of limiting trail traffic. I found them very intimidating to ride slowly through. How would a parent using the wide 2-child trailer be able to use this portion of the trail?

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

Disappointed

May, 2020 by melvinadrian55

The trail was rough and not really suited for road bikes. Where they patched it with ground up asphalt is very rough and not packed well and sucks you’re tires and pulls you.

The trail from Mattoon to a trucking company looks good but from the trucking company toward Charleston which is where we started the trail was not good for road bikes. They have used what appears to be recycled asphalt and it is rough and not packed down well.

Rosedale South Trail

Two thumbs up

May, 2020 by wilnd6900

We, myself, my 10 year old son and our black lab enjoyed a nice walk on this trial today. Yes, it isn't the longest trail, but for a nice after dinner walk, it's actually the perfect length. It's maintained very well, very clean and so, we highly recommend this trail to all of our friends and family members.

Wabashiki Trail

Great trail and signs.

January, 2020 by devldawgtjk

My daughter and I took a quick walk down the trail from parking at National to the other parking area where the new trail may start at move east. My question is why are the No Trespassing signs still up on the levees? Trail conditions where great but it leads one to wonder if it’s really an open trail. I will be photographing in this area and look forward to more access into the area.

Sugar Creek Trail

connection finished

September, 2019 by jtkoehler2

as of last year the break in the map shown is now connected. There is also a parking lot next to the animal shelter which is where you can get on the trail. (that is the connection point) You do not have to go the west end anymore to get on it. It is all paved. My biggest complaint is that it still does not connect to downtown trail head park. which would solve the other problem, which is , it is too short.
