For outdoor enthusiasts, The Fox River Bike Trail offers over 40 miles of guaranteed enjoyment. It runs beside the scenic Fox River in Northern Illinois, along the routes of historic railroad lines, crossing six bridges along the way, and passing through nature preserves and charming towns and villages.
The Trail is the perfect outing for spirited cyclists, hikers, families and outdoor aficionados. No weather is too extreme, and if the snow diminishes your chances of hoping on your bike, the trail offers up a great cross-country skiing opportunity.
Stop along the way at local diners, or pack a lunch and take a break at one of the many picnic spots. Look out for signage along the Trail showing the way to an auxiliary trail that detours through local neighborhoods and along Main Streets.
