Rend Lake Biking Trails

Rend Lake Bike Trail GraphicCurrently there is a 9.4 mile bike trail open on the east side of Rend Lake with more trails to open later on. The current trail is broken up into 2 parts. The north trail runs for 5.9 miles from the Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park Office (off of 154) to Rend Lake College. The south trail (not currently connected to the north trail) runs for 3.8 miles from the Southern Illinois Artisan Shop & Visitor Center to the North Marcum Swim Beach.

The completed trail is paved and can be used for hiking and biking, and those with disabilities can use the trail due to the level terrain of the trail. Also there are numerous access points along the trail to allow visitors to choose the length of their trail adventure.
