If you’re looking for a great outdoor escape just minutes away from the Decatur, IL area, we’ve got the answer. Well – actually five of the answers. Along with some help from our friends at TrailLink.com, we’ve put together a list of five trails that offer a natural way to get away from it all.
#1 Bunn to Lost Bridge Trail
According to TrailLink.com, “This trail is an extension of the Lost Bridge Trail that goes from Springfield to Rochester.” The first half-mile is heavily wooded “urban rail trail,” and the trail offers a bridge across a creek that runs from a lake in the golf course.
#2 Conservation District Trail
This trail is located North of the Sangamon River crossing and follows Stevens Creek through a forest on the west end of Decatur. It’s an asphalt trail and ends at the Rock Springs Environmental Center.
#3 Constitution Trail
This trail is aptly named as its total length will definitely test your constitution. It covers approximately 42 miles through the Bloomington-Normal area. You’ll definitely want to catch and traverse specific parts of the trail rather than tackle it in its entirety.
#4 East Prairie Bicycle & Walking Path
Located in idyllic Monticello, this trail spans one mile and also runs next to the old railway in town. According to TrailLink.com, it “has open prairie farmland to the east and a narrow, mostly wooded ribbon of land separating it from the other tracks on the west.”
#5 Fairview Park Trail
A flat, tree-covered trail that is located in western Decatur, the Fairview Park Trail will take you by many of the park’s attractions including the aquatic center, lake, gardens, pavilions, dog park, and other amenities.
