Great Western Trail (IL)

it’s fun

It is a great trail and super fun to bike on

Deer Grove Trail

not a fan

September, 2023 by 97ca5crqis

Once a great hiking preserve no not so much. It is evident that funding just isn’t there for a quality site like other county trails. They still have a chain link fence blocking off an area damaged years ago which looks like an excuse to no maintain and save money. As it’s been under repair for a good 10 years. Deer grove was my backyard growing up and it was an amazing preserve it’s sad to say that it is no more

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail

Don't bother. Trail is still closed and the canal has been drained. The wildlife is gone and the trail not maintained. This is why I gave it a one star rating. There isn't a zero rating which it deserves.

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail

its okay

September, 2023 by joannamaciej

I basically drove from romeoville to morris halfway from morris i started to feel like this trail was not safe when you get out from the woods park west and the bridge is gone in morris so just avoid the trail going to seneca

North Central DuPage Regional Trail

Beware- Not 100% Asphalt

September, 2023 by desibianca

Misleading description- was anticipating an entire asphalt ride - instead found sections to be gravel. ¿

John Husar I&M Canal Trail

Enjoyed the newly paved loop on this trail. Lots of shade along the path. Bonus, when you are done riding a great micro brew location quenches your thirst.

Long Prairie Trail

Nice area, but only part of trail is rideable

August, 2023 by sarahccaltvedt

After reading other recent reviews, we first rode the Stone Bridge Trail from Roland Olson Forest Preserve to Rockton and then headed back east to the Long Prairie Trail. Once we were on the Long Prairie, the surface changed to asphalt and was reasonably ok - some big bumps and cracks were marked - until we got to Caledonia. After that the surface got worse, and we turned around when we'd gone a mile or so farther. It was a nice ride with plenty of shade, and we managed to get in about 25 miles total. Still, it's a real shame that we can't ride from the east end of the trail anymore.

Centennial Trail (IL)

Mostly beautiful

August, 2023 by jimegli

My wife and I biked the trail this (Monday) morning, starting at the swing bridge just north of Romeo Road, going all the way 12 miles north, then back. The trail is nicely paved and most of the way goes through beautiful, shaded woods. Two or three miles go along an industrial, barge docking area along the river. One mile of this stretch, there is no dedicated bike path, instead you bike along Canal Bank Road. The trail connects to several other nice trails. I’d probably give Centennial Trail 4.5 stars if possible. A very nice trail for the most part. We enjoyed it.

North Branch Trail

15 mph bike speed limit is like "No dunking" signs at a basketball court.

Cal-Sag Trail

trail still closed at 127 and 83

August, 2023 by amitchel56

We started at freedom park rode across the canal then were stuck in road construction nightmare. After walking across the intersection dodging cars and trucks we were able to continue beautiful the remainder of the ride. Just beware you may want to start at a different point.

Southern Dupage County Regional Trail

Easy & safe ride for all ages

August, 2023 by kimlogan

This is a real nice and mellow bike ride. We start at Book Road and 83rd street in southern Naperville. We ride all the way to Bolingbrook near Greene Road and Route 53. There is only a very short part that is on local streets. This is pretty safe especially because drivers along this route tend to look for and respect bike riders.
