Description

The I.C. Rail Trail is named after the Illinois Central Railroad bed that it is built along. The trail consists of 12 sections of mixed difficulty, traversing the varied terrain along the Lowell Parkway Trail corridor. The trail numbering starts and ends at the intersection of the Lowell Parkway Trail and the gravel access road from Washington St. to the Meadows Park trails. The trails are multi-use and are open year round to walkers, hikers, runners and bikers. This trail is not open to horses.

The I.C. Rail Trail can be accessed from four different locations,
1. Via the Lowell Parkway Trail (bike path) starting at the parking lot on Washington St.
2. Via the gravel road leading from the dog park at the end of Washington St. out to the Meadows Park trails. There is a parking lot at the dog park.
3. Lowell Park via the connector trail to the Lowell Parkway Trail (bike path). Parking is at the Nature center.
4. At the intersection of Lowell Park Road and the Joe Stengel Trail/Lowell Park Trail. There is no parking at this entrance.

The singletrack has a nice mixture of smooth sections and tighter technical terrain, including small ravines, roots, stumps and some rocks. The other varied obstacle is the vegetation.
