Q: Can you run trail -Guest

A: You can. There are runners but it is mostly bikes. The ground has many rocks, roots, and is uneven. Good for bikes with suspension probably not good for running.

Review: CAMBR has done a terrific job on all the trails in the palos forest preserves. These trails range from easier flowy to technical with some pretty steep drops. Lots of roots in areas. Love the area

Review: Used to ride this 3 days a week back in the day. Probably seen every mile of this system. Difficulty ranges from easy fire roads to technical stretches that will test your skills and your nerves. A don't miss if you're in the area.

Review: Yes, awesome trail system. The trail head can be hard to find, go to the end of wolf rd. A black diamond awaits. I rode it wet!!! Be aware, if you are not a lover of slip and slide downhill....you may want to go only when its dry up there. Come with your A game!

Review: Great trail. Enter all the way at rear where road does a circle. Adjoins to a large network. Dirt trails are periodically off of main gravel trail. Links to multiple lakes. Great Spot.
