Support Expanding Trails in Illinois

A new resolution in the state Legislature could help spur new trails in Illinois—and help complete its section of the cross-country Great American Rail-Trail®.

This legislative resolution brings into focus the benefits of trails in Illinois and the importance of closing the remaining gaps along the route of the Great American Rail-Trail in the state. It will help galvanize support to fund more trail projects and connect more communities in the state.

Take action now: Tell your legislators to support a resolution (Senate Resolution 50) to complete the Great American Rail-Trail in Illinois—and expand the state’s growing trail network. Personalized comments work best. Tell your legislators why trails are important to you!
