Metro East Park and Recreation District
More than 150-miles of trails line the rural, suburban, and scenic landscapes found throughout Madison and St. Clair Counties in Illinois. Put it this way, you will personally run out of fuel before you run out of trails! The interconnected system of trails that crisscross the region have been built utilizing partnerships and collaboration amongst multiple public agencies, but no contribution has been more significant than that of both Madison and St. Clair County Transit Districts. Each of the transit districts have made trail building a top priority, so new trails are always coming online. Be sure to check out MEPRD's online trail map to see the latest developments!
