Activities at your forest preserves



Biking is among the most popular outdoor recreational activities in forest preserves throughout Lake County. Download trail maps.

Trail Courtesy

Since bicyclists share our many multiuse trails with others who want to enjoy the outdoors, please follow these rules of common sense and courtesy:

  • Ride on the right.
  • Pass on the left and alert others in advance when passing from behind.
  • Control your speed at all times and be prepared to slow down when approaching other trail users.
  • Use additional caution when around horses.
  • Keep on marked trails.
  • Remember that bicycles should yield to horses, hikers and cross-country skiers.
