Three loops of 10 mile trail through forest, hills, and meadows at Clinton Lake State Recreation Area. Almost all single-track trail except for small section on road & bridge that connects two sides of the trail loop around the lake. About 1500 feet of elevation gain per loop. This is a challenging scenic trail. You may forget that you are in central Illinois! Two fully stocked aid stations each loop (start/finish & half-way), but runners should bring a water bottle.
