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 width of the trail making parts of it an extremely bumpy cycling ride.

The Constitution Trail is a great system to navigate the cities without cycling directly on the streets. However, the serious cyclist may find the frequent street crossings and bumpy surface conditions a less than desirable alternative to street riding.

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 have a stroller.

Probably one of the top places to do your jogging in BloNo. I go there every morning and great to see other families during the morning enjoying the outdoor.

I can't say many negatives about the trail. It is very well maintained for running, walking, cycling, blading, etc… It runs all through Bloomington/Normal - - so it's nearly accessible from anywhere in town. Marathon training is a breeze, as is just taking a lovely stroll with your pet or children. There are SEVERAL road crossings, which is why I give it a 4 instead of 5. Unlike a "rails to trails" type of trail…this one runs right though the centers of the towns, so at some points, you're crossing roads several times in less than a 1 mile stretch. If you have to clip out of your pedals, stop your pace, or use the trail for training, this can sometimes be a nuisance depending on the time of day and time of year. Otherwise, it's a wonderful and perfect addition to a beautiful city.
