Transportation projects take time, and regional trails are no exception. Trails and bikeways that cross counties, municipalities, and recreational areas require careful planning, engineering, and coordination in order to be completed. DuPage County is an active partner in making regional trail connections into a reality.
The County's typical regional trail standard is off-street, multi-purpose trails and sidepaths. However, inter-jurisdictional regional trails and bikeways can transition between many types of facilities, including on-street bike routes, sidepaths along busy roads, and rail-trails. Nonetheless, the primary purpose of establishing bikeways in DuPage is to improve non-motorized travel throughout the County and beyond. In order to assist you with navigating our regional trail network, the County works with municipal partners, forest preserves, park districts, and other agencies to produce trail navigation tools for your convenience.
