This is the best 9-10 mile loop I have found in Chicago. Beautiful, shaded, not crowded, 2 water stations, plenty of small hills. Outstanding.

I love this run! There's little water so wear a water belt especially on a hot day. Lots of shade and beautiful scenery. The trail is immaculate with no tree trunks to hop over. Best run west of the lakefront!

My favorite run. Most challenging if you go clockwise and count down the miles. The trails are groomed in the winter but not cleared, so you can put on some yaktrax and enjoy a nice run. This winter I saw some nice multipoint bucks and a red fox. This frogs are deafening now (april) as you pass by the ponds.
