Trails Under Development or Consideration

Trestle Trail

This shorttrail will take riders safely to the east of Lebanon along what was formerly known as Korte Sewald Rd. The Lebanon Toenship Trustees have designated the trail to go from the east end of McAllister St in Lebanon to Oak Grove School Rd south of Lebanon From there riders can continue east, north and south as far as rolling lightly traveled country roads can take them. This trail is expected to break ground in early 2017.

Trolley Trail

This one mile trail is about 50% funded and will take riders safely to the west along the former Lebanon/St Louis Trolley route from Belleville St to Reider Rd. From there riders can go north or south on country roads to get to desitinations such as Scott Air Force Base, O'Fallon, Belleville, Edwardsville and even St Louis on connector roads and trails.
