History buffs, nature lovers and sportsmen will thrill to the sights and sounds of the 96-mile route of the Illinois and Michigan Canal. Along its banks are numerous state parks, restored historical sites, and abundance of wildlife and distinctive landscapes, ranging from bluffs to rolling hills. Visitors can follow the I&M Canal State Trail beginning at Rockdale along the old towpath to LaSalle and experience 61.5 miles of scenic views of the canal and the Des Plaines and Illinois rivers. At every turn, trail users will find something of interest. One can spend an afternoon or several days exploring the wonders along this picturesque and unique area.

pretty easy trail to bike on. compacted limestone so not too bad even on a street bike. At one point cuts through a farmers field..Haven't done that since I was a kid. No real elevation changes.

Good trail, however the trail gets extremely narrow at many points. This becomes a problem due to the frequent mountain bikers that pass by. It almost felt like hikers were unwelcome. I would avoid bringing children or elderly people on this trail. The constant leaping out of the way could cause issues.
