Prairie Crossing Bike Path Description

The Prairie Crossing Bike Path is a hard surface trail connecting Mundelein to Grayslake in central Lake County, Illinois. The trail is perpendicular to the 30-plus-mile Millennium Trail, which it intersects with at Hawley Road. The trail runs along the west side of Midlothian Rd., a fairly well-traveled road that travels through a mix of residential, light industrial, farmland, and shopping. Points of interest along the trail include schools, a public library, a shopping center, the Lake County Fairground, and two Metra (transit) stations. There are several road crossings, including at Peterson Road which has its own bike-ped path heading west.  

Parking and Trail Access

Near the south end, you can park at the shopping center on W. Maple Avenue. near the north end is the Prairie Crossing/ Libertyville Metra station paid parking or alternatively, you can park in the Prairie Crossing neighborhood (be considerate of residents).
