This is a beautiful paved trail through the woods with bridges across streams. The boardwalks were especially nice. The hills are steep in places, but it was the perfect place to stop and stretch our legs after a long drive along the interstate highway. The...More

After a day on I-70 you have to get out, stretch your legs and clear your mind before checking into your hotel. We found these trails fit the bill. The trails are wide, paved and gently rolling as they ramble down through the forest to...More

We walked two hours on these paved trails in late September 2016 on our way to hiking the five Utah national parks. These trails are very hard to find, but worth the effort. They are completely paved and principally designed for bicyclists, but it still...More

If you happen to stop in Effingham IL at the intersection of I-70 and I-57, be sure to get your walk in on the TREK trail. It's a very nice trail through fields and wooded areas. Cross the Little Wabash River and enjoy the scenery....More

We had some time to kill while stopping over in Effingham. We decided to take a walk. Although this park was a little hard to find, it was well worth it. It is very close to exit 160 off I57 . There is no signage,...More

Good for people who like to get out. Bike or walk from different access points. Beautiful scenery (and cute dogs).

My family loves going for a walk or a bike ride on those trails! It is THE place to relax, get some fresh air and/or work out!

I do not think this area has hotels right off the trail. We stayed at the Super 8 Effingham and it is a 10 to 15-minute and easy walk away. See our review of that hotel.
