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 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 a 7 mile bike ride. Be prepared for a long ride. The trail is well marked and paved. There are parking lots in between so you do not have to do the entire ride if you choose not to

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
