DuPage River Trail

Dupage River Trail-Royce Road access

May, 2023 by jcook1950_tl

Trail is in great condition, hardly any bumps and just a small hill climb east of the trout farm.
It can get congested on weekends/holidays.
Very scenic views with forested and open areas.
It is about a 5-mile round trip from Royce Road to Indian Boundary Park.
There is a 2 mile connecting loop from the trout farm that goes around Whalon Lake.

Tinley Creek Trail (North)

Great trail !

May, 2023 by jason.boggs72

Perfect if you’re looking for a leisurely ride. Paved trails. Great for beginners. Several bridges to cross in the woods. You have to cross a few busy streets but nothing to bad. We did about a 10 mile loop on the red trail starting by Arrowhead Lake.

Calumet Trail

Conquering 30 Miles of Wet Brutality

May, 2023 by dirksachse74

As a dentist with a penchant for thrilling outdoor escapades, I recently embarked on an adrenaline-fueled gravel expedition like no other: Calumet trail. Allow me to share my firsthand experience and rate this trail a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

From the moment I saddled up, it was evident that this ride would put my skills and endurance to the test. The gravel terrain presented a formidable challenge, demanding unwavering focus and precise control. The relentless rain turned the path into a treacherous, mud-covered rollercoaster, adding an extra layer of intensity to the journey.

Despite the daunting obstacles, I couldn't help but appreciate the breathtaking beauty that enveloped me. Towering trees and verdant landscapes created a stunning backdrop, reminding me of the untamed wonders of nature. Catching glimpses of wildlife along the way added an element of awe to the experience, showcasing the harmonious coexistence between humans and the natural world.

However, let me emphasize that this trail is not for the faint-hearted or inexperienced riders. The technical demands and physical exertion required are not to be underestimated. Prior preparation, both mentally and physically, is vital to fully embrace and conquer this challenging course. A reliable and robust bike, such as my trusted companion, the Sirvelo, is an absolute must for tackling the rugged terrain.

Amidst the hardships, a sense of triumph washed over me with each conquered section of the trail. The sheer satisfaction of pushing my limits and overcoming the obstacles was an extraordinary feeling, fueling my passion for adventurous pursuits.

In summary, Calumet trail is an adventure that beckons seasoned gravel enthusiasts to rise to the occasion. With its demanding terrain, awe-inspiring natural surroundings, and an invigorating rush of adrenaline, this trail earns a solid 4-star rating. So, fellow adventurers, don your gear, prepare for an unforgettable journey, and let this gravel odyssey ignite the thrill-seeker within you, even if you're a dentist like me!

Salt Creek Trail (IL)

park at Dean Nature Sanctuary to avoid closure

May, 2023 by jilliannnelson

Today, we rode from Dean Nature Sanctuary to the 7-11 just south of Busse Woods and back. About 34 miles, from the parking lot of the Sanctuary. Good option during the 294 construction that has the path closed at that location. Some parts of the Salt Creek path are very bumpy.

DuPage River Trail

DuPage River trail-Hammel Woods access (Will county)

May, 2023 by jcook1950_tl

Rode from hammel woods (on black road) north to trailhead at sunset park in plainfield then south back through woods to trailhead at jefferson street in shorewood, about 10 miles roundtrip.
North of black road the asphalt pavement is flat and in excellent shape. Trail goes from the woods parking lot then north under black road and through a wide prairie along the river with no shade. South of black road the trail winds through the woods with very little slope and asphalt pavement is in good shape. Easy riding all the way.

Have been on this trail from both ends. Winimac and Royal Center have plenty of services. Half shade spread though out. Good condition over all. You will like it.

John Husar I&M Canal Trail

What a happy discovery!

April, 2023 by dnowatzki

I lived in the area for 34 years and rode this trail on a regular basis. It was always the most ignored and neglected of the FPDCC trails. Today I stopped by for Trail Opening/Earth Day for a short hike and found that this trail had finally been repaved! Can’t wait to enjoy the smooth surface with my bike.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Skokie Valley Trail (Lake County)

Trail still closed for repair

April, 2023 by stevecepa

The trail closed signage is still up as of 4/15/2023 around the 8 mile area. You can get through, but considering the date, it's possible construction will resume as the weather warms in the next few weeks.

Orland Park Bikeway

a Walker

April, 2023 by jnewest_tl

Not all the way around the lake is paved. Some gravel. Then off trail too. Showing its age in some spots. so rough for bikes. But bringing my boots to see if the off trail goes around the lake?? Liked the wooden path over the marsh area. Didn’t go through housing area.
