Camp Camfield

Average Rating:    (3.86 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Camp Camfield has recently been converted from a hiking path to a multi-use (hiking/biking) trail system. With the cooperation of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (Lake Shelbyville), and the Central Illinois Mountain Bicycling Association, Camfield will soon become another biking destination for riders in Central Illinois. There are currently approximately 5 miles of trails at Camfield with more mileage planned for future use. Most of it is singletrack, as well as some jeep roads and meadows. The terrain is gently rolling with some steeper ups/downs in places as well as some rooty sections.

Summary:
Rode the blue and green run at this trail and really enjoyed. The trails are nicely marked and clean. I like how the trails lead right into one another. I will definitely ride again.

Summary:
There have been some major improvements to this trail. The local biking club has logged a lot of hours on it and has had considerable cooperation from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The trail now has some new bridges and bench cuts and the whole loop is long enough to spend a good amount of time out there. It is a very scenic trail running along beautiful Lake Shelbyville. The terrain has a little bit of everything and a begginer loop has been created to get people familiar with the sport. There are hills, creek crossings, technical sections, and all around fast sections for good racing. It will be interesting to see what this years race (Rough Cut Classic) will be like with the new and lengthened loop. Very satisfying and worth the drive. There are picnic tables, bathrooms and a pavilion for the whole family to enjoy.

Summary:
Not very technical. Good place to take a newbie starting out. When this trail was started it meandered through a flat and boring wooded area. Since then the fine folks at CIMBA have added some small rolling hills to the mix. I've heard that more trails will be added in the future. Suggestion: Use as much of the lake coves and valleys as possible. There's enough flat trail already. This area has potential.

Recommended Route:
I've found that it's easiest to ride ON the trail itself.

I wish I could. There aren't any. Well, maybe that one named after the indian dude ;-O

Summary:
The singletrack here is really sweet it was well built and sheds the water off good. Rolling hills, nice switchbacks, decent climbs. Good place for beginners to learn, but still fast and challenging enough to satisfy most. The worst thing about camfield is it is not long enough.(YET!)

Recommended Route:
I would suggest doing the whole loop if it is not to wet. Water tends to stand in the grassy sections. On days when it is wetter I would suggest out and back on the singletrack.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Illini trail eagle creek state park. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
