    Riding in Illinois

    Hello,

    Does anyone, by chance, know of any good trails to ride in southern Illinois? I'm in the St. Louis metropolitan area, so anything in that area of Illinois or Missouri is definitely welcomed as an option.

    I know there used to be trails around SIUE, which is about 10 miles away from me, but most or all of those have been closed for habitat restoration and for research by the university biology department (I know, because I do field work out there). Is there anywhere else around?

    I'd also be willing to drive to the Shawnee National Forest in So-ILL or the Ozark Mountains in Missouri. I'm sure there are great trails around there.

    Forest City in St. James Missouri is a fun trail.

    They list some trails in Southern Illinois.
    Metrology has nothing to do with the weather.

    Yeah, I found GORC yesterday. I noticed they have trails around me. Some of them are at SIUE, and their not closed. They're just in a different part than I had thought they were. I'm stoked about that because it's super close. The other ones close by are definitely worth a drive out there.
