This trail is close to my house so it is convenient as well as safe. There is one or two small uphill/downhill spots but the rest is flat and paved. It is a nice trail, but the Tinley Park Forest Preserve trail is far better.

Nice paved path. I like the ups and downs on the path; not flat and boring. Shady parts with nice big trees. But it’s too close to road noise and neighborhoods and the golf course for my taste.

Quiet paved trails in both suns and shade and lakeside views.

Lots of broken sections in pavement, feces and bugs. But some decent views in certain spots

Nice small loop trail. Not too bad.

Great trail for biking and walking

A nice trail that is better for bikers and runners not as great for hiking/nature. Well maintained with plenty of garbage cans. Only drawback is crossing at busy streets but otherwise enjoyable experience.

This trail is a good to see. You see runners, dog walking, bikes on this trail. One bad thing is that you have to cross a lot of busy roads. So use caution while crossing intersections because cars are going fast and some people try to beat the traffic lights.

I would’ve given it 5 stars, it’s a pleasant and moderate trek. The issue was when I got back to my car parked off of Pulaski Road. Someone decided to smash in windows and take things out of cars, I was fortunate. However, I felt so bad for those who just wanted to get out and enjoy a warmup this season. Be warned that lurkers are watching when you leave your vehicle, don’t leave any valuables inside. I called 911 and hopefully they catch those responsible.

Trail does not have many areas where you would want to stop and look around. Area by lake did have a nice vantage point. Main water is just off parking lot and allows remote control boats.

We went out on a warm February afternoon. Nicely located as part of the Cook County Forest Preserve, the Midlothian Meadows loop walks you through a level trail into the forest preserve, with numerous shelters and places for picnicking in Chicago's southern suburbs

l love this trail because it's not flat. The entire trail has plenty of hills and rest stops to explore. You can also ride to Palos Hills and connect to another trail called cal sag which is another 10 miles riding towards Romeoville. Cal Sag is fairly new so the trail is smooth. Excellent trail to explore.

The "start" icon on this map is incorrect though the trail is apparently in the Elizabeth Conkey Forest. And the maps on this site need a Map Key explaining what all the symbols mean.

That being said I usually take the trail starting at the point under the "w 135th st" signage. This is the Cooper's Hawk picnic area, and I go south here to Rubio Woods. I usually do only about 1.5-2.5 miles, one parking lot to the other & back. Distance of course depends on how far you wish to go, and if you believe the mile markers set out by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. This is just part of a continuous trail throughout the forest which stretches from 131st St on the north to 167th Street to the south. Elevations, flora, & fauna all vary as well, but are totally lovely & enjoyable. Trails are asphalted and have an occasion trash bin along the way so they are usually clean. Trails are also available for jogging, cycling, roller blades. Enjoy!

A little short but pretty good for being surrounded by residences. Unleashed dogs can be a problem sometimes so watch out. This trail is close to local walking trails built by the individual subdivisions so if you have a GPS I encourage you to bring and use it or you might get lost.
