Runner Notes

This trail has a grassy tread that is known to get soft and squishy in bad conditions.

Description

At over two miles, the East Trail is the longest trail in the forest preserve. The gentle mown-grass path takes runners for a pleasant journey past marshes and through grasslands.

Keep an eye out for wildlife and birds as you explore the area's grasslands.
