The River-to-River Trail starts at the Ohio River in Elizabethtown, IL. It ends 160-miles later at the Mississippi River in Grand Tower, IL.

After following the road north out of E'town for about .5 miles, you come to the first R2R blaze. The blaze directs you off the main road onto a dirt farm-lane. One mile later, you enter the Shawnee National Forest.

March 2013, MuhKeeTa & I did half the trail, from E'town to Goddard Crossing. We hope to do the second half next year.

I sure will, PT! Though I only get down there about once or twice a year.
