Welcome to Bikeways and Trails
County is proud to be the home of one of the first successful rail-to-trail
conversions in the United States - the Illinois Prairie Path. The
foresight of the volunteers involved in the 1963 transfer of railroad right-of-way to DuPage County led to a nation-wide
rail-to-trail movement and an outstanding legacy for County
residents. Today, DuPage is home to more than
500 miles of trails that are, together, an integral part of our identity.
NEW! DuPage Trails App Released
In collaboration with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, the Division of Transportation and the GIS Division have created a trail mapping application that enables users to actively navigate the County's trail system. The new web-based application provides the locations of various amenities such as other regional trails and bikeways, restrooms, parking, and much more. To learn more, CLICK HERE to open up our trifold informational brochure.
