Illinois Prairie Path
Let's be honest--Chicagoland weather can be unpredictable in the spring. Regardless of the weather or your fitness level, the Illinois Prairie Path helps residents and visitors stay active year-round. The path is the first successful rail-to-trail conversion in the United States, spans over 40 miles in DuPage, and is a main artery connecting communities, quaint downtowns, forest preserves, and recreational trails.
