Explore Your Forest Preserves: North Branch Trail Extension

At last week’s Forest Preserve District board meeting, I had the opportunity to tour the most recent extension of the North Branch Trail. Officially opened in September of 2016, the first phase of expansion includes a direct connection to the existing 18-mile North Branch Bicycle Trail, a 10 foot wide asphalt trail and two new bridges. With this new extension, the North Branch Trail totals 18 miles (a map can be found here). In total, the Forest Preserves offer over 300 miles of trails to be explored in Cook County. Download any of the trail maps and start exploring!
