Leland Path Description

Although a relatively short trail, the Leland Path provides an important connection between the Hononegah Recreation Path and the Stone Bridge Trail. The pleasant, tree-dotted pathway travels through residential neighborhoods, as well as some retail areas, in Roscoe, a suburb of Rockford situated along the Rock River.

Parking and Trail Access

Mid-trail, parking is available at Main Street Square (at Williams Drive and Main Street). At the southern end of the trail, you can park in Leland Park (on 4th Street between Broad and Harrison Streets). Street parking is also available along the way.

Leland Path Reviews

Typical neighborhood path and connector

s

This is a well maintained path. It is even plowed and salted in the winter. Not much in the way of scenery, as it passes through residential and retail areas.

It connects the Stone Bridge Trail to the Hononegah Path, and also passes by Leland Park in Roscoe. The trail head at Elevator Road and Main Street is also where the Kinstone Path starts.

Wilma and I walked it one day as part of a loop that included the Stone Bridge Trail, the Kinstone Path, and a short piece of the Hononegah Path. Such as they are, pix and video are available at http://ilbob.blogspot.com/2012/01/stone-bridge-trail-leland-path-kinstone.html.

This trail can also almost connect you to the Riverside Recreational Path that is mostly in Riverside Park. Riverside Path leaves Riverside Park, goes under route 251 and ends inside Roscoe about 3 blocks SW of Main St and Chestnut, coincidentally, or maybe not so coincidentally, where Leland Path turns north on Main Street. One has to wonder why the powers that be did not make a connection between the two paths, as there appears to be no obvious reason not to. But there are streets and sidewalks that can be used to get from one path to the other.
