The Techny Trail links downtown Glenview, a charming village northwest of Chicago, with the Techny Basin, a scenic wetlands area adjacent to the West Fork of the Chicago River's North Branch. Immediately north of the basin, more formal West Fork Park offers a playground, athletic fields, and basketball and tennis courts.
While the Techny Trail's looping northern end offers the most scenery, the southern end along Johns Drive, Lehigh Avenue and the active Metra railroad tracks provides direct access to Glenview's popular downtown area. Start or end your trail journey with a bite to eat at one of the area's many delicious restaurants.
Parking for the Techny Trail is available at West Fork Park (intersection of Westleigh Drive and Willow Road) in Glenview. Alternatively, find on-road parking in downtown Glenview.
