The Fox River Bike Trail offers more than 40 miles of guaranteed fun. It runs beside the scenic Fox River in Northern Illinois alongside historic railroad lines, crossing six bridges, and passing through nature preserves and charming towns.
The trail is the perfect outing for spirited cyclists, hikers, families and outdoor aficionados. No weather is too extreme to take advantage of the path.
Find food en route at one of the many adjacent restaurants, or pack a lunch and pull over at one of the many picnic spots.
