    Rails to Trails

    Trains once operated along the green bridge we will soon be passing under, carrying coal from local mining communities to East St. Louis. After the mines closed, the tracks were removed, and in 1991, one of our nation’s first multipurpose trails opened here. The trail is now owned by Madison County Transit and is part of 130 miles of connecting trails in this county.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
