West Branch DuPage River Trail
The West Branch DuPage River Trail (WBDRT) is a 26-mile trail that connects DuPage communities along the West Branch of the DuPage River. This trail meanders through picturesque natural areas such as Timber Ridge, West DuPage Woods, and Blackwell Forest Preserve on its way through western DuPage County. At its southern terminus, the WBDRT connects to the DuPage River Trail in Will County. Along the way are the downtowns of communities like Winfield, Warrenville, and Naperville, where the trail offers long stretches of uninterrupted views of the riverfront between destinations.
The WBDRT is an interagency effort led by the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County. The Forest Preserve has partnered with municipalities, park districts, and DuDOT to assist in the construction of various segments.
The West Branch DuPage River Trail is nearing completion. One final segment remains in West Chicago:
