Just 1 mile long, the Valley Line Trail (a.k.a. the Skokie Line) extends between the 4400 block of Bryn Mawr Avenue and the 4400 block of Devon Avenue. The trail runs through the Sauganash community, skirting the eastern border of Sauganash Park, where you'll find parking and restrooms. The trail occupies a former railroad embankment through a wooded corridor among neighborhoods. Plans call for extending the trail north into Licolnwood and Skokie.

Short, but within the city. Recently dedicated, this trail runs on an abandoned railway. It goes alongside of Sauganash Park, where there is parking and restrooms. There's room for cyclists as well as joggers, strollers, and baby carriages too.
