View of Middle Fork River Valley, Illinois Scenic River Easy trail along east berm of Middle Fork River. Nice river views along whole trail. Steep banks down to river, have kids and dogs in check, trail is slippery when wet. Some downed trees on trail, easy to get over. At end of trail can return on trail or walk down road that you came in on.

Amazing trail. Good quality trail condition, next to the river, and if you climb down, excellent riverside look lunch spot.

Great view of the river and a fairly easy trail. Note that this really isn't a "loop" trail. It's about 0.8 miles that runs between a road and the river. At the end, you can turn straight back and walk it back (sort of an out and back trail). Or you can walk back on the road, which I suppose makes it a loop. That would be the boring way back . . . We used to run this all the time for cross country. You can run a giant loop around the park on the roads and this trail keeps you parallel to the loop.
