My friend and I only rode 10 miles of this trail, but I will be coming back for more! It was so beautiful in the fall. Nice ride for any level of cyclist

This is a great, well maintained bike trail. We explored the stretch of trail between Vienna and Tunnel Hill. Gorgeous woodland as you cross thru Shawnee. We also took the stretch from Vienna to the Cache River wetlands. We were able to park our bikes and hike the trails the rest of the day. Highly recommend if you are looking for a smooth, pleasant riding experience.

We visited this bike trail while camping in Vienna. We have three 9 year old children. We biked from Vienna to Tunnel Hill (where the actual tunnel is). To give you an idea of the physicality of this trip we are not avid bikers and we’re not in exceptional shape. Just your average peeps. Round trip was just shy of 19 miles and it took us just under 3 hours. There was a slight, but ever present incline when heading towards Tunnel Hill. However, it did make for a much easier ride back. The trail is well maintained. There were lots of bridges and several tunnels. And there was one bridge that seemed to easily extend 100’ over the river and put you right in the tree-tops! The tunnel was gorgeous and longer than expected. It’s disorienting riding through it, but what an experience.

This is a wonderful trail for biking or walking. The day we rode our bikes and it was extremely hot. Due to it being mostly uphill we were not able to make it to the tunnel.

This 45 miles long trail is very straight. It might look boring especially for the hiker but I highly recommend it for bikers. One end is located at Cache River Visitor Center near WHite Hill on I-37. There is an easy and convenient access from the Main Brothers Campground in Karnak, IL and many other places along the way.
