Description

Nearly 10 miles of crushed limestone trail runs through the roughly 2,500 acre Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve that surrounds the Argonne National Laboratory. Along the Main Trail, you'll pass a model airplane field and a scenic overlook of the Des Plaines River. You can also take a side trip along the Rocky Glen Trail to see a waterfall constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

The trail tends to be well kept, and riders will enjoy the gently rolling terrain.
