Rail trail

A rail trail running through Bloomington and Normal, spurs go off on Sugar Creek and to the boundaries of town. Worth experiencing on foot or on wheels!

The Constitution Trail is such an asset in this community. IT seems safe ( except when some bikers are speeding and don't give a warning to walkers!) and clean. Plus at one trailhead near Hoose Ele School porta potties have been replaced with a very clean bathroom building. There are several benches to sit and rest. I wish markings for... More

I discovered this trail while going on a morning run, it was such a beautiful site considering the area I was staying was in the heart of a shopping district.

The trail started 25 years ago as a rail-to-trail connecting Bloomington and Normal, and has steadily expanded since. Today there are branches connecting many areas of the two towns, and expansion north and south along route 66 is happening, too. Great place to walk, ride, or jog. Just remember to share the trail!

I wish we had a trail like this at home! Miles upon miles of well kept paving, with water stops and little areas in the shade to rest in, lots of pretty scenery!

Located right in the city this is a good 24 mile trail for walking as we did. Saw some people on bikes and running.. Of course we did not do the full length but did have a good time getting some needed exercise.

Nice place for a family outing to ride/walk/jog. Main North/South trail is under covered trees for days when it is hot and sunny.

A linear park composed of miles of lovely paved trails. Perfect for biking, walking, running, and even cross-country skiing in snow season!

I have cycled every inch of the Constitution Trail and it is a nice trail for walking, jogging, blading, and the casual cyclist. Great parks directly off the trail at several locations with an excellent ramada and new public restrooms at the central "Y" triangle confluence. The Vernon/G.E. Road section of the trail has numerous cracks and rises running the... More

This trail is very well maintained. I would recommend it for cycling. If you are interested in a hike there are many other choices that would be better. Be careful because there are several crossings that require you to cross heavily traveled roads. This is especially difficult if you are walking with someone that is disabled in any way or... More
