Trail Overview

A beautiful and leisurely stroll through a small section of the Eastern side of the Cherokee Nation. This route is approximately 58 miles long and can be completed in 2-5 hours, depending on the speed of travel and any stops along the way. The route is all county roads and can be completed by any 4x4 and most 2WD. Care should be given during inclement weather (especially heavy rain) as flooding and road closures can occur. There are multiple scenic areas for photography and sightseeing along this route. If planning occurs in the summer months, a float trip down the Illinois River is an absolute must! If planned during the fall, check the fall foliage calendar to ensure the best colors!
