    The trail is about 160 miles long. Parts of the trail are open to everything, parts are roads, parts are restricted and parts are hiker only. It just depends on where you are. The trail is on State,...

    That section from Makanda to Route 51 in pictures. I'll go back over it in the Spring

    http://rivertorivertrailhike.com/dir/?page_id=1601 What I wouldn't do for one of those wheeled Gas string trail cutters. Well, one thing I wouldn't do is pay for a new one. I won't be taking the...

    I just noticed I left the L off the Rivertorivertrailhike.com link. These internet links are so unforgiving. Thanks Tau!

    My biggest issue with the R2R society guidebook is that none of the roads are labeled on the maps!! (I won't go into the out of order pages and maps) That's what I have been trying to get done on the...
  6. Rt 51 to Makanda is now cleared.

    I cleared Eastern Star to Makanda yesterday, and the Highway department just moved the embankment (Very low I might add, well done!) So the RT51 to Mikanda leg is clear and actually a nice 2 mile...

    R2R is cleared from 51 to Shepard Rd. Still have the short section between Eastern Star & Makanda. I plan on hitting that and remowing the 51 overpass in a couple of weeks. I might try contacting the...

    Before views of the trail head off Shepard road and the entrance to the woods in the 3rd photo above. The trail was nearly unhikeable and really, unfindable from the East.

    R2R between Rt. 51 & Sheppard Lane. -Makanda

    I got the trail cleared including both fields Tuesday. Didn't have time or energy to tackle the short section between Eastern Star and Makanda. It will be early next month.
    Managed to get my...

    I actually have cheap latex gloves, I'm just too lazy to put them on most of the time.

    I actually pretty well messed these up by spraying too close but I didn't want to paint my hand, which I did anyway. A little practice wouldn't have hurt.
  12. MY cheap alternative to buying white plastic blazes.

    The River to River trail here in Southern IL has very little to no maintenance in some of the privately owned easement areas like Power Line right of ways and privately owned areas with trail...

    About a month ago, I did work on clearing that section. I'd recommend not hiking it until I get the East end cleared and the short section from Eastern Star to the town. That said, it is still better...
  14. R2R trail

    Well, you are an hour closer than me, but I'll race ya. I'm planning on going back possibly next week if the temp goes down or 3 weeks if not and finish clearing the Makanda to RT51 areas. It needs a...

    Too bad I can't gather all my thoughts into one post. The American Discovery trail IS also the trail between Mikanda & Rt 51. Actually the only markers fot it I have seen are on a Tree at the edge of...

    Forgot to mention the 3 trees had R2R blazes and I moved them to standing trees and added another 28 or so along the trail. They won't get too lost there if the weedy field can get a small path cut...

    I'd say 80-90% of the trail itself is fine. Some places on private lands just don't have any maintenance to start with. Permission to travel over it is about as far as it goes. (power & pipeline...

    I'm getting a website up and useful on the River to River trail. There aren't a lot of sites up with much info. and the River to River Society no longer has a website up. Still under construction....
