Follow This Abandoned Railroad Trail For One Of The Most Unique Hikes In Illinois

The Tunnel Hill Trail in Southern Illinois is one such trail that follows the route of a railway that was abandoned long ago. This accessible trail is rated as easy and will take you through some gorgeous scenery along the way.
