Trail Closures

We graciously appreciate your patience and cooperation with the period closures and reroutes that take place on the County's trail network.  Contact us if you encounter any issues on posted detours.

Detours & Closures

Illinois Prairie Path - Aurora Branch - Frontenac Road to the CN / EJ&E railroad

This segment of the Prairie Path is closed do to changed traffic patterns on the CN / EJ&E Railroad. The railroad is currently parking trains at the existing at-grade railroad crossing necessitating the re-routing of the Prairie Path. The Prairie Path has been re-routed to Diehl Road while the County develops plans to construct an underpass.   View Detour Map

GREAT WESTERN TRAIL - ELGIN BRANCH TO SASSAFRAS DR, WEST CHICAGO

Construction of the Great Western Trail extension has begun.  Please avoid this section of the County's right of way until the path is improved.  The construction is expected to conclude by October, and the path will then be open to the public.
