Awesome dirt trails and several side trails, great elevation changes. My last visit was 8.33 miles going through the brown, teal, yellow, orange trails. Amazing workout. Also has a nice paved loop and a paved trail that crosses over Quentin if you don't like the dirt/gravel trails.

My boyfriend and I biked this trail the other day and we were pleasantly surprised by the trails here! They were perfect for a challenging but enjoyable bike ride, and there were so many in the park to explore while making this loop. There were a lot of mosquitos however, so even while riding bug spray was necessary.

You can enjoy peaceful forest Trails and this place is one of the best place around Northwestern Chicago.
Highly recommended!
