Mahomet Trail Course Description

Salt Fork

Salt Fork River Forest Preserve (Homer Lake)

by David Scott

Useful links: (Salt Fork River Forest Preserve website)

The trails at Homer Lake offer an interesting alternative running venue close to Champaign-Urbana. The land is quite flat, but there is a good mix of prairie and woodland, and pleasant views across the water. Getting there is usually easy (see below for special instructions as of June 2002).

Trails of Central Illinois

by David Scott

This is an on-going project to document good running trails in central Illinois. At present I am concentrating on trails within about one hours drive of Champaign-Urbana. Later, it may be expanded to include locations further afield. The trails in the guide are visited regularly on weekends (generally Sunday mornings) by the Buffalo trail-running section of Second Wind Running Club. A recommendation for post-run breakfast is included in most cases.
