Mountain Biking Raceway Woods

****   Add a review
#6 of 128 mountain bike trails in Illinois
#415 in the world

This system of trails has a unique history as it used to be Meadowdale International racetrack decades ago. The old racetrack has been restored to a sweet paved bike track but there is quite a bit of off road trails in and around the track. The terrain is pretty varied for Illinois which makes this worth riding. There are some steep descents straight down the fall line sometimes including jumps, there are some twisty trails through the woods and there are some longer stretches through meadows.

Rider questions

Q: How many miles is the trail?
A: You can get in 14 miles with a good circuit and the system and doing some backwards. This makes it so you don't feel like you're ridding the same trails over and over

Q: I forgot my phone at home today. Is there a way to add a check-in for Raceway Woods Carpentersville IL? THANK YOU for check-in!!! It actually also comes in handy for warranty purposes to validate my claims of how few trail hours I've actually put on a troublesome piece of gear.
