MCT Bluff Trail
Twisting through the forests and farmland near New Poag Road near Edwardsville, MCT Bluff Trail winds along the Great American Bottoms' ancient bluff line over two miles of asphalt trails on the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus. Notable points of interest include a historic log cabin, Whiteside Cemetery, SIUE Korte Stadium, Simmons Cooper Stadium, a cricket pitch, athletic fields, and large swathes of prairie grass restoration areas. White-tailed deer, native birds, and many other endemic species call the area home. Take a ride and go bird-watching or take advantage of SIUE's many well-kept gardens.
