Sculptures along the trail are cool. Trail is flat and not strenuous.

Not much of a hike, pretty flat. You can see dear here and there's a river that's sometimes empty or sometimes full. It's clean out there but to be honest there's not much of a view ever. Considering the location it's one of the better ones but overall on all the trails I've hiked its boring and uneventful.

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