Beautiful trail!

is this trail closed during hunting season?

This trail is now called the Chris Kegel Alpha Bike Trail. Nice hike.

This is not a flat trail. There are light hills throughout -- complete with signs warning of gradients. Not flat. If you're looking for flat, you'll want to start somewhere else. That said, this trail is absolutely beautiful! I was winded from the hills more than I wanted to be, but the trail was a delight, nonetheless. Beautiful wild flowers, beautiful trees, beautiful meadows, beautiful water. Just stunning!

Go in the morning on a weekday, and you'll nearly have this area to yourself! Enjoy the many moods of Lake Michigan, great views of the city, and plenty of swamp and water birds

Good time, Good trails, Extremely Easy with multiple trail routes to choose. We started here, went west, & walked to the beach.

It was very fun and kept me on my toes! A lot of elevation changes and tight quick turns! Great workout!!

Love hiking this trail with the dogs, only occasionally see others while out. Bird watching at its best!

Another fantastic trail in Chicago. This is a bit of nature set outside the city, offering a breath of fresh air with some epic views.

This would be such a fun beginner trail running path, but a large portion is closed for several months and August had just way too many spiderwebs, biting bugs and loud cicadas for now. I’d suggest waiting for a less humid day to enjoy this beautiful trail.

this trail has a wide range of features it includes berms, roots, some opportunitys at small jumps, wood features and technical rock sections the only thing missing is a decent drop.

The marked trail is actually a mountain bike trail. Nice enough, very circuitous, east to miss a turn as I did. Entertaining ski “slope”. Toboggan Run too.

Trail had construction and patches stale and standing water.

Good mountain biking trail. There were a few trees down blocking parts of the trail but other than that it was good

Great trail, but it can get crowded.

just a reminder that there are no restrooms anywhere so be prepared.

Nice trail along the Kankakee River with a lot of wildlife.

There’s many entrances to the 606.

Pretty city and lake views! Paved parkway for bikes, rollerblades and strollers. I highly suggest looking into the 5/10k Run for the Zoo- you run this path and also through exhibits!

This is a mix of cook county forest preserve trails that vary from gravel, dirt, and paved. Well maintained and marked.

Good hiking and quiet. Great for my dog.

The woods were great. A muddy trip it was March though. We did encounter three off leash large dogs that charged us on our walk. So that was awful for myself and my leashed dogs. I would hike it again but because there were many people walking unleashed dogs on the trail I'll leave mine home next time.

Very flat but scenic.

It was a good ride. I’m a little out of shape ( understatement) but it was challenging and fun
