Dogs: Leashed

Description

From Headquarters Forest Preserve, head south underneath the Harlem Road Bridge. Switchback up the hill and cross the river using the Harlem Road Bridge.

After crossing the river, switchback under the Harlem Road Bridge again and continue east along the path. At Victory Lane, the trail turns north and becomes a city sidewalk. Continue along Victory Lane for about 0.6 miles. At Roosevelt Road, the trail becomes a pedestrian path again and turns east. Continue east, being careful at the U.S. Highway 251 crosswalk, until you reach the Harlem Community Center.

The trail actually continues a little past the community center before it ends at the intersection of Scott Lane and Roosevelt Road.
