Valley Line Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Just 1 mile long, the Valley Line Trail—also known as the Sauganash Trail—extends between Bryn Mawr Avenue and Devon Avenue in the Chicago neighborhood of Sauganash. Two bridges allow for safe crossings of busy roads. The trail, which occupies a former freight railroad corridor, also skirts the eastern edge of Sauganash Park, where you'll find parking and restrooms.

Although the Valley Line Trail is currently short, plans call for it to eventually be extended north through Lincolnwood to meet the Skokie Valley Trail, which is in the process of being extended within the community of Skokie.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Valley Line Trail is available at Sauganash Park off N. Rogers Avenue.
