Hickory Creek Bikeway Description

The Hickory Creek Bikeway offers nearly 4 miles of paved pathway through a wooded preserve. On its western end, the trail begins at Hickory Creek Barrens Nature Preserve and Lincolnway Road; on the other side of the roadway is Lincolnway Central High School.

From there, the trail continues north and east. Just before the trail's crossing of US 30 (on a bike/ped bridge), you'll find a large playground and parking area. The trail continues a short distance farther south, past Gun Club Lake and residential neighborhoods. At its end, it connects to the Old Plank Road Trail, which continues west to Joliet and east toward Chicago Heights.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the west end of the trail at the Hickory Creek Barrens Nature Preserve. Additionally, near its eastern end, near the trail's crossing over US 30, there is parking available on the north side of US 30.
