A nice ride. The hub is a good place to start.

Hennepin Canal Parkway

Hennepin Trail-Rock Falls

July, 2022 by dynomight

We started out at the park on E 2nd Street in Rock Falls. Very nice park along the river....had bathrooms but they were locked (in July???). Hit the trail in Rock Falls and headed south on the trail. First 3 miles of the trail were on asphalt, very bumpy conditions. After that, it was what appeared to be packed dirt, maybe had limestone on it at one time. Had to be watchful of craters and debris on the path. Could have used some pruning as well. Some areas of the trail were very narrow. Was fairly quiet on the trail, ran across a few people fishing, some walking, and only one other set of people biking. Could only go 16.2 miles and then came upon a Trail Closed sign. If you like less traffic, this is a good trail...but could use some maintenance. We saw some snakes, rabbits, squirrels, and deer. There were a couple places along the way to stop to go to the bathroom...but no place to get water.

Great River Trail

Great River Trail

July, 2022 by dynomight

We rode the Great River Trail from our hotel outside of Thomson, IL and headed south past Fulton (little over 18 mile ride from our hotel). We turned around a little past Fulton because we hit rather large gravel and didn't want to wind up with a flat tire. This area of the trail is about 50-50 road and trail. One section of road that was asphalt was in pretty bad shape. Signage was poor, no place to potty, no place to get water, and not well shaded. While we didn't go on the middle of the trail, we did drive past it. It looks like a lot of that goes along IL84. We did spend another day going from Hampton, IL to Rock Island. Signage was much better, river view most of the way, and plenty of places to stop along the way.

Mississippi River Trail (Riverdale to Davenport)

Easy riding along Mississippi

June, 2022 by hilbertdr

We rode the segment from the I-74 bridge to Credit Island. The trail is in good shape and there are great views of the river most of the way. The part from I-74 to the Centennial bridge was a little crowded on a beautiful Sunday but the rest of the ride there were very few people.

Great River Trail

Interesting ride through Quad Cities

June, 2022 by hilbertdr

We rode a short segment from Sunset Park in Rock Island to the I-74 bridge. Great views of the Mississippi along with some of the industrial infrastructure we enjoy seeing along bike trails. The paving was in pretty good shape and it was easy riding.

Hennepin Canal Parkway

3.5 star ride - from Bureau to Wyanet

June, 2022 by ericevan

Trail biked - I started at the east end in Bureau. The parking lot there has bathrooms and trashcans, and plenty of parking. I biked east to Wyanet, and back.

Bike used - a Specialized Sirrus hybrid.

Bike accommodations - hybrid to mountain bike mostly. Road bikes will not survive many portions of this trail. I was leery to ride my hybrid in some sections near Tiskilwa because of the mid sized gravel in spots.

The trail composition from Bureau to Wyanet varies. From Bureau to the Tiskilwa area the trail was a mix of dirt, small gravel and portions of asphalt..although those overed by cindery rocks. Some areas are nicer than others and I didn't see any areas that were unmanageable for my hybrid tires.

The trail composition greatly improved heading west of the Tiskilwa area. The trail becomes a powdery earth and can even accommodate road bikes. Until you get to this point, however, you'll need to keep both hands on the grips.

The trail follows a series of disconnected water canals that serve as nice scenery. Every so often you'll come across a lock, which are numbered, giving you an idea of how many away you are from your starting point. A river also carves the trail in many areas, offering some nice views. As for wildlife..I spotted several turtles in canals and one trailside (almost accidentally biked over him). I also saw a pair of deer and a ton of colorful birds (red, yellow, blue, orange, black, white, gray, brown). The Orioles were a rare treat.

In the stretch I took there were only a couple of places where I spotted benches. One is in the Tiskilwa area. Bridges span the lock areas which offer nice water drains to view and areas to sit on the edge for a break. During my two hour ride I saw a dozen other bikers, and this was on a 75 degree, cloudless Saturday in mid-June. Suffice it to say, there aren't many folks out here unless you count the occasional fisherman.

Other nuances, the trail offers a nice split of shade and sun, but more on the sunny side. I saw one parking lot with trail signs in my stretch.

Seeing as the trail quality greatly improved on the eastern outskirts of Wyanet, I would love to come back and continue biking west on this trail some day.

Cheers.

Kewash Nature Trail

Improved with concrete path

Have ridden this many times. Went yesterday & they have paved a portion of it on way to West Chester.

Trail is straight little to no grade. We always see deer, chipmunks, birds & snakes.

Unpaved ,portion is pretty much dirt packed with little to no pea rock. Rutted in spots bc of rains.

Overall a decent trail. Hope to see more improvements!

Not that much shaded areas but it was a good time.. very windy at times cause it’s next to the river.
