Rock Island Trail

The Rock Island Trail is a 37-mile long paved and unpaved pathway that extends from the riverfront area of Peoria to the community of Toulon.

The route of the trail goes through urban areas, past residential areas, across farmland and natural areas, over several picturesque bridges and through several rural communities.

The trail is open for non-motorized uses such as bike riding, running and walking. The northerly portions of the trail are not paved, but the portion within the Peoria area, south of N. Atlantic Street in Alta, is paved. The trail is not continuous and in some locations trail users will need to use local streets to get from one section to the next.
