Bike paths are perfect for walking, jogging, rollerblading, cross-country skiing or bicycling.
Some paths loop around the perimeter of a park while others are linear connecting neighborhoods to parks, schools and business centers.
The Park District’s pathway system has three major legs and many lesser offshoots. The major legs, the DuPage River Greenway, the ComEd Greenway and the Lily Cache Greenway, will connect to each other linking neighborhood’s to schools, business centers and parks.
The pathways are part of an extensive regional plan that eventually will connect 42 miles of trail along the East Branch of the DuPage River to 20-some miles along the Lily Cache Creek. More than 25 communities, park district and forest preserve districts are involved in the regional bikeway plan for the DuPage River. Ultimately 42 miles, from Glendale Heights to Shorewood will be linked up with Bolingbrook in the heart of it all.
