Springfield cyclists, walkers, and joggers grab your bikes, dogs, and running shoes!

The Sangamon Valley Trail extension is officially open!

The second leg of the trail continues through the northern border.

The Sangamon County Board said this might be the most exciting part of the trail yet!

It goes over two rivers and has a very natural setting.

However, this doesn't mark the end, the board hopes to keep extending the trial.

"Either we'll go a little further north and connect the end of the trail to New Salem or we'll go south from Centennial Park and connect to Virden," Andy Vanmeter with the Sangamon County Board said.

The Sangamon County Board said this is just phase two of the phase three or four project.
