Rock Island Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike begins from the same starting spot as the hike along the Billy Wolff Trail, by the city zoo, but runs through much more bucolic scenery. (Hike both it and the Billy Wolff hike if you want a workout.) Most of this hike follows a strip of parkland lined with trees, particularly ash and oak.

Like the Billy Wolff Trail, this hike begins right by the
zoo. However, it soon moves into a more woodsy atmosphere, buffeted from city streets by thick stands of trees and
stretches of grass. After walking past the zoo and crossing the street, you walk past an old factory converted into residential living spaces. The trail then opens up into parkland. As the trail passes over Garfield Street, look to the left to see Lincoln’s Veterans Memorial Garden, with memorials to several wars, which stands in Antelope Park."
