Route 30 Bikeway Description

Leave the cars at home: the Route 30 Bike Path gives users an alternative way to travel from the Village of Frankfort in the east, through Mokena to New Lenox in the west, a distance of over 7.5 miles. The paved pathway sits on the north side of US Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) for most of its length, switching to the south side near New Lenox. The setting alternates between commercial and residential areas. It also connects to parks to nearby parks and open space. Significantly, the trail provides access to the Hickory Creek Preserve via the Hickory Creek Bikeway. There are two access points into the preserve from the trail: One is known as Hickory Creek Junction (Prestancia Drive, Mokena) and the other is known as Hickory Creek Barrens, on Schoolhouse Road in New Lenox. Both of these points have parking, seating and restrooms. 

At Hickory Creek Junction, you can also branch off and take the Hickory Creek Bikeway on the bridge over Lincoln Highway and south for just over half a mile to reach the Old Plank Road Trail, a 21-mile rail-trail stretching from Joliet to Chicago Heights.  

The trail is usable year-round: cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are the main activities in the winter, whereas walking, biking and rollerblading dominate the rest of the year.  

Parking and Trail Access

As mentioned above, parking is available at Hickory Creek Junction (Prestancia Drive, Mokena) and Hickory Creek Barrens, (Schoolhouse Road, New Lenox).
