Connection to Jane Addams Trail
The Pecatonica Prairie Trail will in the future connect to the Jane Addams Trail in downtown Freeport at Tutty’s Crossing. The Jane Addams Trail is a multi-use 15-mile trail that offers beautiful scenery and 21 decked bridges passing wetlands, creeks, woods, prairies, geologic formations, and farmland.
The trail, named after Jane Addams, the humanitarian and public health pioneer born and raised in nearby Cedarville, is part of the Grand Illinois Trail. Its crushed limestone surface may be used by hikers, bicyclists, snowmobilers, and cross-country skiers.
The Jane Addams Trail connects at the Wisconsin state line to the Badger Trail which extends to Madison, Wisconsin.
