The Orland Park Bikeway provides a great connector across the Chicago suburb of Orland Park. On its southern end, the trail begins at W. 159th Street and winds its way through Centennial Park, which offers many amenities including ball fields, an aquatic park, dog park, pavilions, and fishing piers. Shortly thereafter, the trail parallels S. Ravinia Avenue, providing access to the shops and restaurants along the busy roadway, as well as a spur leading to Cameno Real Park, a tot lot.
You'll pass the popular John Humphrey Complex with multiple ball fields and public restrooms. From there, the trail angles northeast and becomes more residential in nature. When you come to the Ravinia Place crossing, you can turn left (head west) and reach the Orland Park History Museum (14415 South Beacon Avenue), just a block from the trail.
North of the museum, the trail loses its quiet flavor for a short distance as it follows two multi-lane roadways, W. 143rd Street and South La Grange Road (US 45). But don't get discouraged; after crossing La Grange on a bike/ped bridge, the rest of the trail returns to more tranquil settings, winding through residential neighborhoods and past small ponds and parks. The trail ends at a connection to the Tinley Creek Trail, which provides the opportunity to connect to several forest preserves throughout the area.
Parking lots are available in Centennial Park (15600 West Avenue), the John Humphrey Complex (147th St & West Ave), and along Ravinia Place.
