Welcome to Bikeways and Trails  

DuPage County is proud to be the home of one of the first successful rail-to-trail conversions in the United States - the Illinois Prairie Path. The foresight of the volunteers involved in the 1963 transfer of railroad right-of-way to DuPage County led to a nation-wide rail-to-trail movement and an outstanding legacy for County residents. Today, DuPage is home to more than 500 miles of trails that are, together, an integral part of our identity.
