It is refreshing to find a nature trail that has beauty and a mix of nature. Great running track. It has people on it. So, if there were issues, someone would be close by. However, it was not packed.

Wow! I loved walking this expansive trail system. It's well-maintained, well-marked, and has plenty of free parking. There are also restrooms along the trails. It was busy with walkers, runners, bicyclists, and roller-bladers, but we didn't feel crowded, even with all the activity. It's such...More

The greater Chicago area has many "Forest Preserves." This one is readily accessible to highways and major roads and on a rainy, dreary, November day was a great spot of fall foliage. The drive through the park passes several parking lots and rest areas. There...More

The Busse Woods Trail System is a great example of how government bureaucracy and meddling can ruin a concept. The trail system is (at best) adequate with about 8 miles around the forest preserve. However, it is old and hasn't been updated to accommodate the...More

It is approximately halfway through the woods on Higgins Ave. North of Higgins. Go to the Forest Preserve District of Cook County website: fpdcc. Here is a link to a map: downloads/maps/pdf/bw_trailmap.pdf
