Union Pacific Recreation Path Description

The Union Pacific Recreation Path offers a short route through the Village of Lincolnwood's east side between Devon and Touhy avenues. Following the former Union Pacific Railroad, the rail-trail offers a paved pathway with a 2-foot gravel shoulder on each side. While the northern end of the trail is in a busy commercial area, as you head south, the trail gets quieter and residential.

The south end of the trail is just east of another rail-trail, the Valley Line Trail, which begins on Devon Avenue and heads south for a mile.

Parking and Trail Access

The Union Pacific Trailhead Parking Lot is located behind Lincolnwood's Public Works Department building at Lunt and Morse avenues.
