Great trail. Lots of ups and downs. Light traffic and seems pretty safe with a buddy. Can be slightly strenous if you are out of shape. Trail has been cleared out well. Enough number of benches. Definitely need a bugspray.

it was a great workout. not too difficult, but nice. very little traffic

Hiked about 1.5 miles of this trail starting at Camp Wokanda. Trail started as pea gravel but soon transitioned to clay. Even after a day of heavy rains the day before, the trail was mostly dry. Lots of great elevation changes, and the small bridges added by the eagle scouts really helped navigate over the gullies. If you're out of shape, be prepared to stop a couple of times going up the steps... There are a couple of benches along the steps where you can get a break. Will be back when we have more time.

Nice trail close to home. Crushed gravel makes for a generally smooth surface that dries out pretty quickly. Good place to go when you're short on time and need to get a quick run or ride in without the need to venture out of town.

Great trail for a nice ride. River to Dunlap round trip 25 miles.

Very easy and flat trail that passes through Peoria. This trail goes for miles and miles, much more than the 23 as it connects to other trails going out passed Morton or out passed dunlap. But it is great for walks during the week and you can add weight to a backpack of you want more of a challenge.

Great trail lots of hills can be a good workout....trail now goes from camp Wokanda all the way to Detweiler Park....
