Singing Hills serves as an important trail hub for the Millennium Trail, with car and horse trailer parking and a toilet.
More than 21.5 miles of the planned 35-mile Millennium Trail are complete and open to hikers, bicyclists and cross-country skiers. A 9.25-mile section from Lakewood north to Singing Hills Forest Preserve is open to equestrians. The trail surface is mainly gravel from Lakewood north to Singing Hills. North of Singing Hills, the trail surface is mainly asphalt with a few gravel sections.
Open Trail Sections
Millennium Trail sections currently open include from Hawley and Route 176 in Mundelein west and north through Lakewood and Singing Hills to Marl Flat Forest Preserve in Volo; from Litchfield Drive to Fairfield Road in Round Lake; along the Round Lake Bike Path; from Hook Drive east through Rollins Savanna Forest Preserve in Grayslake; and from Fourth Lake Forest Preserve to McDonald Woods Forest Preserve in Lindenhurst.

Planned Trail Route
Elsewhere, new trail sections and tunnels are being constructed, and lands are being purchased to complete the route for the trail as it winds its way through western and northern Lake County. The trail connects neighboring communities and forest preserves along the way, and will eventually link to the northern section of the Des Plaines River Trail (DPRT) in Wadsworth.
