Kankakee River Trail

So happy to have this nearby. Lots of things to enjoy along this trail when you're in the main part of the park.

Erie Trail

Great Trail

May, 2022 by amrosenow

This trail is a great gem for the community. I stopped by while visiting family and was thoroughly impressed by this trail. Yes there are some cracks, but not nearly as many as many other rail trails and most have pink spray paint to point them out for bikers and, I am assuming, to fix them. The trail is also a decent distance and is close by to an ice cream shop (perfect after a 90 degree ride!).

Rock Run Greenway Trail

First Day

Beautiful and clean sidewalk paved trail along the river.

Veterans Memorial Trail

Very nice trail but 355 is noisy.

April, 2022 by jmbb6kcd7p

Good trail to walk but because of 355, it’s not a very peaceful walk.

Northside Trail

Easy Fun Paved Path

April, 2022 by calebjordan79

Easy bike path, Just watch for geese. Only point of needing to stop is the light at Ironwood. The Norte Dame canoe teams can be seen all the time on the water. There are covered areas to stop at along the away and benches by the river.

Centennial Trail (IL)

Hidden Gem!

April, 2022 by swhouseworth

If you are in the Chicago suburbs and love long bike rides, this trail is a must. Not crowded at all, very few roads to cross, and fairly well maintained. The hills are practically non-existent, but frankly, that's perfectly fine. I have nothing bad to say about this trail.

Salt Creek Trail (IL)

Plenty Of Great Paths, Some Not So Great

April, 2022 by swhouseworth

Starting at the Brookfield Zoo, the Salt Creek Trail is excellent for biking with a few roads to cross along the way. The path is well maintained all the way to I-294. I have not been on the section between I-294, where it bends north, to Addison. Once you get north of Addison, it becomes an awful, bumpy, poorly marked mess, sharing roads with semis.

Hickory Creek Bikeway

Very Beautiful Bike Ride!!! Highly Recommend

March, 2022 by wfbv4mr4jc

Very beautiful bike path, just be careful for people passing by, otherwise is a beautiful photography place!! the place also has benches which is a nice addition

Tinley Creek Trail (North)

Detours by Turtlehead Lake trailhead

March, 2022 by tmoran11339

If you head west from the Turtlehead Lake parking lot on the spur to meet the red trail, be aware that the red trail is closed for construction where the spur intersects the red trail on the map. FPDCC has installed two paved trails to get around the construction that do not appear on the
TrailLink map. If you want to go south on the red trail, take the south (left turn) trail at the end of the parking lot. After traveling a few hundred yards along the south side of the lake you will encounter a spur heading south (left turn.) Take it and the spur will travel southwest avoiding the construction and will link up with the southbound red trail. If you want to go north, take the north (right turn) trail at the end of the parking lot and it will loop around the north side of the lake and hook up with the northbound red trail.

Wauponsee Glacial Trail

Pesticide drift

February, 2022 by t.makie64

I have ridden the whole trail which structurally is in fine condition. The thing nobody talks about is pesticide spraying. At least 3/4 of the trail is bordered by large industrialized farms. They start spraying in April and continue til Sept. These toxic chemicals get in the air. There are no warning signs.

John Husar I&M Canal Trail

love this trail

December, 2021 by daniel.shaw813

Rode all the way too Joliet. Once you get too lemony it turns into crushed gravel but you get too see some illinois history. It’s got some bumps and cracks here and there but imperial brewing at the beginning of this trail makes the ride so much better once you are finished.
