The Ariston Cafe was founded by Pete Adam, a Greek immigrant, in Carlinville, Illinois in 1924. The original cafe was located on Route 4, the predecessor of Historic Route 66. In 1929, the Cafe was relocated to Litchfield, Illinois and moved into its present location on Route 66 in 1935.

We believe the Ariston Cafe to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest restaurant on Route 66. In 1992, The Ariston Cafe and the Adam family were inducted into the Route 66 Hall of Fame. Since 1966, Pete’s son Nick and Nick’s wife, Demi, have continued to offer the traditional service expected of a family-owned and operated restaurant. Paul, eldest son of Demi and Nick, and his wife, Joy, joined the family business in 2004. All involved in bringing great food and service to your table welcome you to Litchfield and invite you to share our history with us.

The Route 66 Trail was highly enhanced in 2017 and is now 6.6 miles long in a lariat loop configuration. Easy to intermediate trails are located to the South. Intermediate to advanced trails are located to the North, with the Northern “Chicago Loop” containing many uphills and advanced features.

Along the way, you will find flowing singletrack, challenging features, and a number of heart pumping uphills.

You will find many unique log features, a challenging gravel mound, cool bridge, bike moguls, fast downhills, and a woodsy rock garden.

The “Chicago Loop”, located to the far North, is mainly for stronger riders and can be ridden in either direction.

There are multiple trailheads along the way but starting at picnic area 3 on Park Road puts you right in the middle. Go North for really cool features and “Chicago Loop” and head South for an easier ride.
