Trail Running around Chicago, IL

Trail Running around Chicago, IL

The trail system that we’re focusing on is the Palos Region of the Cook County Forest Preserve. With the nearest parking lots located just thirty minutes from the Loop, which is the downtown area of Chicago. (This is assuming no traffic; give yourself plenty of time on both ends of a run just in case.) The Palos Region of Cook County offers a few thousand acres full of dirt singletrack and limestone paths. Don’t come out expecting the typical, flat Midwest, here you’ll find rolling hills and even some 90-foot bluffs great for getting in those hill workouts. Whitetail deer, numerous species of birds, and other woodland animals live here. Of historical interest is that you can find a historical marker where nuclear equipment from the Manhattan Project is buried.
