Glen Carbon Heritage Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Like the other rail trails in Madison County, the Glen Carbon Heritage Trail takes you through a variety of interesting environments. At the beginning, near the village of Glen Carbon, the trail shadows the wooded banks of Judy Creek. Continuing east you’ll encounter ravines, restored prairie, dense woodland, and a trestle bridge over Silver Creek."
