Flat, wide trail though the Kaskaskia River Bottoms and waterfowl refuge area. Well maintained trail through fields and forest with many opportunities for viewing birds and wildlife.

Good trail for an easy hike. Fairly flat and open. Trail goes through quite a bit of river bottoms and will more than likely be pretty muddy during wet times of the year. Trail is open for hiking and horseback riding. Caution should be taken in the fall since the area is open to hunting.
