Salt Creek Trail (IL)

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Salt Creek Bicycle Trail began as a 6-mile paved trail between Bemis Woods South near Oakbrook to the Brookfield Zoo. The trail now extends farther north, from Oakbrook all the way to Busse Woods Forest Preserve near Elk Grove Village, for a total of 25 miles.

The new trail segments are a mix of paved surface and limestone screening, and the trail also uses sidewalks and roads in some places. It is well marked throughout, although take care at some junctions, which can confuse.

The Salt Creek Trail intersects the Illinois Prairie Path in Villa Park, and follows it for a short stretch around State Route 83.

Trail starts down the street from me in EGV. I love the views and the different types of ride adventure you get throughout the towns. A must for all bicycle riders! read more

We rode the short 7-mile original section of the trail starting at Brookfield Zoo for the first time. Most of it is nice, winding path through forests. This was in spring, so there were plenty of flowers blooming and riding through tunnels of honeysuckle more
