The Mahomet Village Bike Trail is a safe, paved route that connects all the major parts of the village.
On the north, there are the various and popular facilities of the Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve: the Museum of the Grand Prairie and the Lake of the Woods Path—besides golfing, fishing, boating, hiking, and picnicking. On the south, there's the large Barber Park, a popular spot for many local events.
There is an elementary school, shopping area, and other village services downtown, and the public library is at the eastern end of the trail. The trail crosses the Sangamon River over a historical bridge built in 1912.
From I-74, take Exit 172 to State Route 47 (N. Lombard St.) and turn north. Proceed about 1,100 feet and turn left into the parking lot. The trail crosses the highway at the north end of the lot.
There are other parking lots at the following waypoints along the trail: Museum of the Grand Prairie (north), Barber Park (south), Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve (northeast), Mahomet Public Library (southeast).
