A new 1-mile section of the Millennium Trail
and Greenway along Hawley Street between Midlothian Road and Seymour Avenue in Mundelein opened in late 2016. Completed in partnership with the Lake County Department of Transportation, this segment features a combination of paved trail, and a portion of sidewalk that runs between Highway 45 and Seymour Avenue.
The planned 41-mile Millennium Trail
is a vital trail corridor designed to connect central, western and northern Lake County. When tied with neighboring Lake County trails, such as the Fort Hill Trail, North Shore Path, Des Plaines River Trail
, and the McClory Trail, it becomes part of a spectacular system linking residential areas to parks, forest preserves, schools, and business districts.
Today, 31 miles of the Millennium Trail
are open to hikers, bicyclists and cross-country skiers. An 11-mile section from Lakewood north to Singing Hills is also open to equestrians.
The trail surface alternates from gravel to paved along various completed sections of the trail.
Horseback riding is permitted only along an 11-mile section of gravel trail from Lakewood north to the horse trailer parking area at Singing Hills Forest Preserve in Volo. From here, the trail surface changes from gravel to paved, and horses are not permitted on the paved section.
