Visiting family, always eager for a spin on two wheels. This is a well-maintained trail though fields and city alike. Ample places to stop, smoothly paved surface all the way.

The Rock Island Trail is a wonderful trail that starts near Peoria, Illinois and goes for 26 miles. Bring water, and some cash to make stops in the local towns the trail goes through. Great Experience. Restrooms at local parks and convenience stores.

Beginners will enjoy the short trips between towns. Distance cyclists will like actually being able to go places, at speed, without concern for crossing motor vehicles. The scenary in places is awesome.
