Running from East Peoria to Morton, The River Trail of Illinois was resurfaced in summer 2011. From East Peoria, the hiking and biking trail travels southeast along the old Illinois Terminal Railway line. Trail users can experience a bit of tall-grass prairie, bluff and forest habitats that comprise the Illinois River valley. This portion of the trail was recently named for Carl "Bud" Schmitt, a long-time advocate for East Peoria's parks and trails.
