The Rock Island Trail is a wonderful trail that starts near Peoria, Illinois and goes for 26 miles. Bring water, and some cash to make stops in the local towns the trail goes through. Great Experience. Restrooms at local parks and convenience stores.

It is sad that this trail is under the maintenance of IDNR, there is a jewel in the rough, everything a trail should be, except an asphalt surface. This trail becomes more suitable for mountain bike status the farther west you ride. The surface lacks depth to hold up but would be good enough to use for a base under 4 inches of asphalt, come on IDNR SPEND THE MONEY to make this a first class trail.

Great packed crushed limestone level pathways--base is the old railway. Tree covering for shade. Bridge across Kickapoo Creek near Dunlap. Good ice cream & cafe & tea room in Dunlap!

I entered the trail in Alta. I have both ridden my bike and walked this trail. The trail is nicely graveled and wide. There are some hills, but not too many. I always felt safe on the trail. In recent years a new subdivision has gone up near Alta so instead of a more nature view, you can see some really nice houses.

Beginners will enjoy the short trips between towns. Distance cyclists will like actually being able to go places, at speed, without concern for crossing motor vehicles. The scenary in places is awesome.
