This a very scenic trail with a number of tough elevations that are challenging when biking. It makes the ride fun. The shade is plentiful and a good break on those hot days. Made it from Hillside to Wheaton, my goal is to make it to both Elgin and Aurora.

Nice and long, but with a lot of street crossings with Stop signs...it is annoying after 4-5 miles.

I live in Elmhurst and love the proximity to this trail. Ride it regularly for a quick workout and have done one long ride out to Wheaton. Well groomed. Plenty of room for runners, walkers, and bikes. Found going onto the Great Western Trail a bit less busy on the weekends. Love that it's shaded.

I ran from Elmhurst to Wheaton and back training for Marathon. It was a great way to do a long run in the burbs. I prefer crushed limestone paths for this type of training.

This is a Great trail for running. Especially for marathon training. Beautiful scenery, nice soft gravel, bikers are well mannered, but most important well shades with trees lining both sides much of the way. One important note there isn't a load of water on the course be sure to bring your own.

I like this path- but too many road crossings. Lincoln marsh is a good place to park and hike after biking path

Nice trail system. well kept for the most part. I still hav a lot to explore. Started in Berkely and went out to St Anne. Runs near some busy traffic areas at times but not for too long.
