Mattoon (from the corner of Dewitt & Logan) to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center

Charleston (from the square) to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center

* Because of its dirt-and-gravel surface, the bike trail is less suitable for road bikes (skinny tires) but ideal for hybrid bikes, fitness bikes, mountain bikes or other bike styles with wider tires. It also offers a way for bike commuters to avoid riding with car traffic for most of the route.
