I have done this trail twice, once with my nine year old son, and the next with a Boy Scout patrol. It is a very nice trail that is clearly marked and well maintained. There are a few stretches that climb markedly and get the blood pumping, but mostly it is a gently rising and falling trail that meanders through beautiful woodlands. It is an ideal trail for Boy Scouts to complete their five mile hike and there is good terrain for teaching how to use a map and compass. You will also pass the grave site of Abraham Lincoln's sister. After completeing the trail, a short walk across the street from the trailhead brings you to the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial. There is a small museum and video presentation about Lincoln's life in these wood that is worth watching. Another small trail leads to the grave of Lincoln's mother and a small pioneer homestead that is occupied by park rangers in period clothing and the preserved foundation of a homestead that is believed to have been the Lincoln family's. All in all, a fantastic area for both the hike and the history.

This was my first hike in a very long time. I could not have selected a better one. A short distance into the woods, I wondered why I had ever stopped hiking in the first place. This was an easy hike. A few steep hills just to make it exercise. The trail header for Trail 3 is almost hidden by the second fire tower trail sign. In fact, I missed it. Determined to do the entire hike, I located the junction where #3 returned to the original trail and hiked backward to find the trail header. I can't wait for the weekend. I am busy trying to select another trail. Thanks Trail.Com.
