Runner Notes

Watch out for pedestrians and bike riders on the trail.

Description

There are about 4 miles of crushed limestone paths at Buffalo Creek Forest Preserve and there will be a significant expansion that will be started in November of 2017 that will re-route some of the existing trail, add a new loop by Lake-Cook Road, and extend the current trails all the way to Route 53. The current crushed limestone trails are flat and easy with easy access to the reservoir for fishing.

Flora & Fauna

Mostly water fowl and some deer.
