Trail starts at Elizabethtown on the Ohio River and ends at Devil's Backbone on the Mississippi River. Great way to experience the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. Passes through Plains, Bluffs, Bayous, and upland Forest. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife. Terrain is between easy to difficult. Multiple elevation changes throughout the trip. The route shown on this page does not include the 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D, and 3E sections that branch out to Battery Rock from the eastern part of the trail. The trail used to start at Battery Rock, but nowadays starts in Elizabethtown.

Despite the trail conditions, I’m thankful it is so close to home and that it even exists.

I plan on doing a section hike of the AT in about 18 months. I would like to do the River to River all the way through to prepare. It's close to where I live. I wouldn't mind others tagging along.

First of all, this map is inaccurate. It's about 160 miles. You can find updated maps at rivertorivertrail.net. Pushed myself and hiked the entirety plus a few side trips in 6 days. Waking up on a misty morning in Panther's Den with no one else around was the highlight. Hiked it in late March, so the weather was perfect and I enjoyed and nice cigar before heading down to the Mississippi. I'd definitely do it again, but there are many more trails to hike.

From what I can see on the map here, it definitely doesn't follow the trail markers. Mainly after Goreville to the Mississippi. Im sure there is a more accurate map somewhere else to be found.

Would love to do this trail from start to finish or possibly in two sections. Would anyone be interesting informing a group and going?

Me and my girlfriend are trying to plan a 4 day 3 over night possible trip and I would like to get about 20 to 30 miles with Garden of the Gods included. Does anyone have a good trail to go with?

anyone planning on hiking the entire trail in one trip? I really would like to do it but I don't really want to go at it by myself,and if anyone has already done it I'll take some pointers on where I can resupply on food and whatnot along the way. thanks!

started in e town, stoped hiking in eddyville. this part of the trail hiked has a lot of forks that are not marked what way to go. trail has been moved around a lot, but they never took down the old blazes. wasted about 10 miles following false trails, lusk creek is the worst part.

Great place in Southern IL to explore. Vast areas of different ecology's with many opportunities for wildlife viewing. Trail can be wide and paved with gravel in places down to barely a single wide dirt path with encroaching greenery on the sides. I hiked this trail every season and would say that late winter/early spring is best for the views before all the leaves grow back. I recommend planning extra time along the trail to explore the numerous side trails to different scenic areas.

Fun first short thru hike for me. Not well blazed in many places and confusing to navigate, but rugged and rewarding.

It was definitely fun, however it's easy to get lost. There are many other trails that branch off of the River to River. The trail isn't always well marked.

Just to clarify, the trail head no longer starts at Battery Rock. In 2010, the made the E'town spur the new eastern end of the trail. Battery Rock was simply too remote to get to, and vandalism to trail markers made it difficult to navigate. Additionally, the Battery Rock portion of the trail used a lot of roads. Using the E'town gets you into the woods much faster. The worst part of this trail is all the ATV's that illegally use it.

Awesome Trail very scenic and peaceful. Several hills to climb but the views are always worth it.
