CENTRAL REGION

With its breathtaking natural beauty and great opportunities for outdoor recreation, the central region has an old railway converted bike path, The Tunnel Hill State Trail, a 48-mile trail winding through farmland, thick woods, lush wetlands and a tunnel for which it was named. The Cache River Wetlands contains 60,000 acres of beautiful forests and wetlands. Canoe the Cache and you might see otters, bobcats, whitetail deer, bald eagles, herons, egrets, Sandhill Cranes and even the occasional Anhinga (the snake bird). Nearby in the town of Metropolis, the official Home of Superman proudly honors their favorite son with a 15-foot bronze statue of the Man of Steel right in the middle of Superman Square.
