Bikeways and Trails  

DuPage County is proud to be the home of one of the first successful rail-to-trail conversions in the United States - the Illinois Prairie Path. The foresight of the volunteers involved in the 1963 transfer of railroad right-of-way to DuPage County led to a nation-wide rail-to-trail movement and an outstanding legacy for County residents. Today, DuPage is home to more than 500 miles of bikeways and trails that are, together, an integral part of our county's identity.

The links on the left side of this web page will bring you to our informational pages, where you can learn more about the regional trail experiences that DuPage County offers for its residents and visitors.  Follow the links on the right side of the page to interact with any ongoing projects or plan your trip on our trails network.

    DuPage Trails App

    In collaboration with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, the Division of Transportation and the GIS Division have created a trail mapping application that enables users to actively navigate the County's trail system. Try out the app!
