The Riverside Recreational Path begins as a gravel lane at the base of Riverside Park on the banks of the Rock River in Roscoe. From there, it continues along Rowena Street, paralleling State Route...

The north part of this trail from 137 to near the Wisconsin border is really nice thru Independence Grove thru some spectacular oak forest, scrub and savannah. Flooding has closed some underpasses at times but overall good trail when open, well marked, easy access and much fun. Lots of birds, small mammals, and the occasional snake. Nice but preserves along the way. Good to get out and enjoy!
This trail is inaccurately described as asphalt. It is partially asphalt and crushed stone. The trail is poorly marked and has too many interactions with busy roads to cross. Would not recommend for any attempt of a long distance ride as not enjoyable.
I have lived in Elmhurst a majority of my life, and I love this path so so much! I recommend it to all my friends.
I've ridden the trail in Lake County a number of times and it's great. This stretch though is pretty rough. Lots of loose gravel, ruts and no markings. I won't go back. Start at the Lincolnshire Marriott and head north and you'll have a great trip.
Bumpy ride from 143rd train station to Tinley Creek Loop. Part of trail was flooded June 2020. Easy detour on residential streets. Overall good workout. Bike with suspension would have helped.
Nice short distance bike trail. I like ShoeFactory woods area. Nice forest preserve!
Went on the trail June 24 2020 and enjoyed it although it was being paved. There are a few busy streets to cross but it was still fun with some elevation changes. Will be worth 5 stars when paving is complete.
Did the entire trail plus stone bridge trail and back with the family(spouse, teenage and pre teen boy). Both trails were nice and not crowded at all. Great trail for family with young kids (hardly any super fast cyclists). Trail get bumpy a bit outside poplar grove. Good mixture of shade and sun.strongly suggest continue on to stone bridge trail.
Had burrito from the Mexican restaurant at the gazebo by the trail in poplar grove.( no dine in during pandemic) supernice staff even brought out food out to gazebo! Will definitely come back.
I can only comment on the eastern end of the path starting in Maywood. There are numerous streets to cross although less as you move west. The asphalt has too many cracks and bumps to enjoy a smooth ride. I will try the west end soon and hope it is better.
Lovely trail in excellent shape. Interesting scenery of woods, creeks and of course the bridge. It was 90 degrees but felt much cooler with the shade provided by the trees. Nice wide path and not crowded for a Sunday afternoon.
Terrible for inline skating. Hills with poor pavement, blacktop repairs that get sticky with heat.
I’ve been riding this trial for 2 years and used it for triathlon training rides even though it is relatively flat. It’s is a beautiful trail with a well maintained surface and occasional street crossing primarily on the southern portion. Their are a few street sections where you would assume the train ends at 95th and 119th. Signage does direct you through these sections. The north section is the more scenic portion. The Dan Ryan Woods area has tree canopy providing shade and the short ride to 95th takes you along well groomed fields. The south portion takes you a across the Cal-Sag channel into a forest preserve where deer encounters will happen. I recently introduced my wife to the trail who kept encouraging me to take her all the way to end. We even picked upped a 2nd couple a long the way. I’ve found this trail to be filled with friendly people who are courteous to cyclists.
