Tight singletrack tucked into a small woodlot above Polecat Creek.

Features -none-

Gets overgrown in the summer. Do not cross Polecat Creek or go out onto the golf course.

Description

This can be a nice little section of tight singletrack when it is not overgrown or blocked. Head there in the fall when summer growth dies back. CILTA hopes to get better access to maintain this area.

Please report any persons found blocking trail with brush. Try to get pictures but do not start a confrontation.

Polecat Creek Trail posted for Central Illinois Trails Association Oct 16, 2013
Probably best trail Springfield has to offer...since the center line has been opened up by the boys and girls in SIMBA! Short steep climbs and downhills and small log roll-overs. And it's only going to get better! (maybe even a couple good jumps) Jul 4, 2016
