Palos Heights Bike Trail Description

The Palos Heights Bike Trail offers a north-south route through residential and commercial areas on the west side of the community. It's also a key connector between two regionally important trails.

On its north end is the Cal-Sag Trail, which follows the southern bank of the Cal-Sag Channel for 10 miles and also provides access to the Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanic Gardens.

On the trail's southern end is the Tinley Creek Trail, which connects several forest preserves throughout the area.

Parking and Trail Access

Near the north end of the trail, you can park at Lake Katherine Nature Center & Botanic Gardens (7402 W. Lake Katherine Drive), then take the Cal-Sag Trail along the shoreline of the lake until you reach the connection with the Palos Heights Bike Trail.

Parking is also available in Memorial Park (7607 W College Drive).
