Overview

No ATVs or motorized vehicles, no horses, no riding in wet conditions.

Description

This intermediate trail system is contained within the boundaries of Mill Creek Park near Marshall, IL. It is about a 20 minute drive from I-70. It's definitely worth a stop if you're driving through the area!

The Fay Pickering Memorial Trails consist of three loops that wind through old growth forests alongside Mill Creek Lake. In some areas, the bench-cut trails get you as close to the lake as possible. There are many rolling sections along with a few technical climbs. This trail has something for everyone to enjoy!

The trailhead is located near the dam. There is also a restroom and pavilion at the trailhead.
