Stretching from Afton to Janesville, the northern section of the Peace Trail offers a paved, tree-shaded route paralleling the Rock River and an active rail line. At its northern end, the trail merges with the Rock River Parkway Trail, which continues east another 2.5 miles along the river. From here, trail-goers can cross County Highway D (Afton Road) to enter Rockport Park, a picturesque open space offering trails, a pool, concession stands, restrooms, a historic farmstead, and the Peace Park Playground.
Another section of the trail, disconnected from the rest, is currently open on the northern outskirts of Beloit. This section spans about 2 miles and enters Big Hill Park, which is nestled along the west bank of the Rock River. The heavily wooded 197-acre park offers hiking trails, an environmental center, picnic areas, and playgrounds.
It's one day hoped to complete the gap between these cities, linking Beloit, Afton, and Janesville by trail.
