Runner Notes

Really nice surface. Ideal for running other than the lack of shade.

Description

The West Trail Loop is probably the nicest trail found in Burnidge. The loop is easily accessed from the Central Trail Loop entrance via a short wooded path. Once on the trail, you'll find a very good crushed limestone surface that is obviously well maintained. Be sure to bring sunglasses though, as the bright white surface is blinding on a sunny day!

This trail is frequented by bicyclists from the campground along its east side. The trail is nice and wide though, so there's enough room for everyone. Just stay aware, as riders are fairly quiet and can startle you as they pass.

There a few benches scattered along the trail. As many Illinois trails, much of it is exposed, and can get quite warm in the summer months, so dress accordingly and carry enough water even for this short loop.
