TREC Recreation Trails

Outer Belt West
Exit 160
Effingham, Illinois 62401

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 and second phase of the trails were recently completed. In addition, the Ryan Wolters Memorial Bridge was completed in 2012 to connect the two sections of Phase One. The third phase is currently under construction.

The TREC mission is to develop a countrywide, multi-use trail system, educate the communities on the benefits of trails, and promote an active lifestyle by providing recreational activities.

Trail maps aer available at the Effingham Visitor Center.
