Fort Beggs Bike Trail (South) Description

The city of Joliet saw its electric utility corridors as a recreational opportunity. One such trail is the Fort Beggs Bike Trail, which starts on Theodore Street and heads northwest in the shadow of overhead power lines, terminating near DuPage River. The trail surface is asphalt, making it suitable for everything for riding bikes to pushing strollers to afternoon strolls. 

Another Fort Beggs Bike Trail segment exists north of this one, across the river in Plainfield.
