Waubonsie Trail Description

The Waubonsie Trail links Boulder Hill and the Village of Oswego via a greenway corridor within a residential community. The eastern trailhead is in Jaycee Park, which offers a playground, picnic shelter and open areas for sports practice.

Old Post Elementary School and Thompson Junior High School are also along the trail, making it a safe route to school for the area’s residents. A short designated on-road route on Brockway Drive, Eastway Drive and Ashlawn Avenue leads to the western section of trail just south of the Civic Center and Aquatic Park.

After crossing active railroad tracks, the Waubonsie Trail enters Eagle Ridge Park and Violet Patch Park. The former features a disc golf course, while the latter is a great place for fishing, boating or picnicking along the Fox River. The trail ends at the Fox River Trail, a 43-mile greenway that originates in the south in Oswego.
