The Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail runs 12 miles, much of the way along an old railroad right-of-way between County Highway 2 east of Charleston and the ball fields at 10th Street in Mattoon; an additional 1-mile loop takes you around the ball fields to Logan Street.
All 12 miles of the trail's surface is paved. The trail is open year-round from dawn to dusk.
Parking is available in Mattoon Park, at the 10th Street ball fields, or by the Roundhouse Complex on Shelby Avenue. Parking is also available midway off Loxa Road where the trail crosses the road. In Charleston, there is a small parking area between the industrial sites where Madison Avenue and CR 7/Old State Road run parallel. Additional parking is at the ball fields on Division Street.
