Join us for the 2nd Annual Kiwanis Club of Galena River Trail Run on Saturday, May 18, 2019. The Galena River Trail is a scenic, forested trail that begins at the Galena Depot Park adjacent to the old Galena Trail Station on Bouthillier Street near downtown Galena. Runners and walkers will travel south along the newly extended trail to Pilot Knob Road and along the backwaters of the Mississippi River. The trail is crushed limestone with a few sections of asphalt pavement in previously flood-prone areas. The course is primarily flat.
