This 8.3 mile trail Connects to the Wabash Trail at the Wabash Trail head located at the intersection of Wabash Ave and Park Ave.
It heads south under Interstate 72 near the MacArthur extension. It crosses the lake on a refurbished railroad bridge and continues into Chatham, ending at Walnut Street.
The trail is very scenic even with its close proximity to the active railroad line. Most of the trail passes through areas that are open farmland or scattered housing.
