Long Description:
From the illinoisriverroad.org web site:

The Illinois River Road National Scenic Byway preserves the natural river country along the banks of the Illinois River, so visitors can travel the same route as early French explorers. Get close to nature and see just what the Illinois River Road has in store for you. Whether hiking the bluff trails, biking our historic canal towpaths, wetting a fishing line or canoeing in one of the beautifully restored wetlands, or simply enjoying serene wildlife habitats, you'll be immersed in the rich history and beauty of the Illinois River Valley.

Unique communities along the way are host to dining, shopping and historical experiences, as well as festivals and events year-round. For a truly unique treasure hunt, seek out 90 geocaches placed throughout the journey; or pick up our Birding Site Guide and spot Bald Eagles, owls and waterfowl that call the Illinois River Valley home.

Your possibilities for adventure are endless.
