Trail Overview

Delta Road and Moad Hollow Road are the precursors to the Opossum Trot Trail System within Shawnee National Forest. This gravel road features an easy cruise leading you through the Illinois countryside showing off its lowland valley beauty. You'll eventually be going into the rolling hills of Shawnee, passing an old stone mine on the right while leading straight to the beginning of the Opossum Trot. The gravel road features moderate washboarding and mounding, seeing only occasional maintenance. It also features two concrete bridges and one low-water bridge along the way.
