Rock Island Trail

What was once a passenger and freight railroad trail is now more than 26 miles of uninterrupted nature on the Rock Island Trail. Located in the Grand Prairie Division, a vast plain formerly covered with tall prairie grasses, the trail has reverted back to nature, with much of the prairie returning. North of Princeville lies a dedicated Class B Illinois Nature Preserve with fourteen acres that have been restored to the native prairie at the Kickapoo Creek Recreation Area.
