Mountain Biking Dupage River Single Track Trail

*   Add a review
#83 of 109 mountain bike trails in Illinois
#11071 in the world

It's a beginner level trail, it elevation doesn't change too often, its got some bumps and it's pretty repetitive, it did get very overgrown so if it looks like a dead end its not, it will let out and lead to McDowell Grove Forest preserve.

Getting there

    This trail is very short, and not super difficult, but difficulty is relative, my first time going on the trail I was struggling but since its somewhat close I've been on it several times, and it is an enjoyable experience, there is a lot of overgrowth which is important to note and also a downed tree somewhere along there. But for a beginner or even if you're close it's worth the ride.

    EDIT: this trail has gotten much worse, time has not been good to it, and it is very neglected. The overgrowth is significantly worse, you can't leave the place without several burs and other things stuck to your shirt. There are more downed tress and it's nearly impossible to ride. It's not worth it anymore.
