Definitely the best hiking trail around Champaign-Urbana. It's tucked away from the interstate and is very quiet.

We had a great day. Nice trails.

Pretty awesome experience for the family. It was super fun and such beautiful scenery! ❤

Crowded but beautiful

overall not all that difficult, parts of it were difficult going up and down the revene because the rocks were wet therefore making them slick. but the rest of the trail wasn't hard.
I would recommend hiking poles and boots for the revene though. pretty muddy overall.

First time on this trail. More of a walking path than hiking trail. Well traveled by joggers, walkers and bikers. Good if your looking to get some miles in. Very urban
