I love the OPRT and have been riding it for 15+ years. Much of it is tree lined, and as a result, has some roots pushing up the pavement here and there. If your on a road bike around 15 mph, keep your eyes open, especially West of Cedar. They do a great job maintaining it, but you can’t keep every bump fixed. But other than that, this is an awesome beautiful trail.
The first part of the trail was really nice with paved paths. Sometimes it can be hard to follow the path but luckily I found other bikers to lead the way. Once you hit Glencoe it’s not paved so if it’s rained a lot recently chances are you’ll go through mud. It was cool following the Metra train line and passing Ravinia.
Needs some TLC. This will be a nice trail once it is resurfaced and the extension completed.
I think we are lucky to have this regional trail which has created network of other trail offshoots. I have no complaints, the general shadiness of the trail provided by trees is nice. I’m excited to make it my summer goal to ride the whole trail. It’s a nice gesture to be able to ride out to Aurora, Geneva or Elgin and take the Metra back, Just one note, bring plenty of water as the water fountains are closed during the COVID quarantine.
what an awesome trail! all paved! no street crossing. perfect for riding with the younger set!! loved it!
This is very well maintained trail with a couple trail connections throughout. The highlight is downtown Frankfort In The middle of the trail. Great bathrooms, parking, restaurants, farmers market Sunday’s and more. It does get crowded in Frankfort so you will need go slow down and there are a decent amount of street crossings as well. If you loop around at Sauk Lake to the East and do the whole route as a loop it’s a nice 50 ish mile route. Quite level with elevation and decline on the east end.
I started in Addison where Oak Street drops in to head north to Busse Woods, and the first 3 miles or so through the industrial park and along the power lines are crap. Not fun on a road bike, at all. Even though it's paved, it's buckled, and there are sharp bumps every like, 50 feet or so, jarred my wrists and made for a rough ride.
I rode this trail back in 2017 from solider field to North Beach I want to complete the whole thing some day but from what I saw this trail is full of nice city views and lake Michigan
This really isn’t too much of a trail. It is a community garden with some spaces to sit and chill
I enjoyed riding on the path, but what I didn’t enjoy is how easily it flooded and how much access water there was on the path. As long as you go when there hasn’t been rain, it will be a great time!
Rode this trail for the first time and it has moved to the very top of my list of paved rails-to-trails in the greater Chicagoland area. We rode the entire trail from Hammond down to Crown Point and back. A lot of money and effort was spent to make the entire length of the trail a bikers dream. Not only is the pavement very wide but the builders of this trail also cleared a wide area on either side of the pavement. This gives the rider a very open feeling, lots of sun, and panoramic views of the countryside.
I have been doing a lot of biking during the quarantine to get myself out of the house. I'm from Lansing, IL., and I am not afraid to do a little exploring. I was not super pleased with a good portion of this trail.
I started at the Oak Ridge Prairie and Oak Savannah Trail Park in Griffith off of Colfax. I took the trail headed east towards Hobart. After about 2-miles you pass the Cleveland St. bridge, and this is where the neighborhood starts to take a downturn. The area doesn't improve until you go under the I-65 bridge. There were large shards of glass on the trail, one underpass bridge smelled of feces or extremely dirty stagnant water, and the houses on both sides of the trail featured unkempt yards, broken or boarded windows, and I felt pretty uneasy taking the trail by myself.
Do yourself a favor and avoid the trail West of I-65. Park at the Robinson Lake Park and head east! I cannot speak for the trail after Hobart, I turned around right before its downtown portion and headed home.
