Regional Trail Development
As part of the DuPage County Regional Bikeway Plan, the DuPage County Regional Commission produces a map of existing and proposed bikeways in DuPage County. Bikeways include local and regional multi-purpose off-road trails and paths. The purpose of establishing bikeways in DuPage is to improve non-motorized travel in the County, as well as provide recreational and health benefits that maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in DuPage. Many of the existing bikeways are off-road trails like the Great Western Trail and the Illinois Prairie Path. Other bikeway areas are located along neighborhood streets, in municipal parks, and county forest preserves. In total, DuPage County has 539 miles of routes, trail and paths, and lanes for bicycle and pedestrian travel. Several regional trails are in development and are discussed separately below.
For further information on the development of regional trails listed above, please contact the Trails Coordinator at 630/407-6900 or via e-mail at TrailPathCoordinator@dupageco.org (Monday - Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm, excluding holidays).
