Nice shaded trail. The sections by the road can be a bit noisy, but otherwise a great outing. Be sure to bring bug spray!

This section is part of The North Face Endurance Challenge Wisconsin ultra marathon races - great mix of piney woods, open fields, single and double track. A variety of trail surfaces: pine needle covered trails, sand, rocks, and mown grass. Street crossings mean you're never too far away from civilization, but this still remains one of the best natural getaways in the Chicagoland area.
