Stagecoach Trail - Hiking & Backpacking

Stagecoach Trail - Hiking & Backpacking

Stagecoach Trail is a historic route through northern Jo Daviess County and western Stephenson County, in the northwest of Illinois. The trail was a part of the larger Galena–Chicago trail that crossed the entire state. Stagecoach Trail connects Galena and Lena through the communities of Scales Mound, Apple River, Warren and Nora. It also runs close to the highest point in Illinois, Charles Mound, and the Illinois-Wisconsin border. The route can be used as an alternative for U.S. Route 20 between Lena and Galena, through picturesque communities and landscapes. Stagecoach rides are offered at several points along the trail. The communities on the Stagecoach Trail, from Lena through Scales Mound feature an annual festival in June.
