The TREC trail system is a public trail designed to create recreational opportunities. The trails provide a great place for visitors to exercise, whether it is riding bikes, roller blading or walking. The first phase of the trail was completed in 2010. Recently the Ryan Wolters Memorial Bridge was completed to connect the 2 sections pf phase one. The third pahse is currently under construction. The TREC Mission is to develop a countrywide, multi-use trail system, educate the communities on the benefits of the trails and promote an active lifestyle by providing recreational activities. Maps are available at the Effingham Visitor Center.
