City Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail Plan With Map of Existing Trails and Future Routes/Trails

Bicycling and walking are great ways to get around, provide relief from vehicle traffic and let us enjoy the scenic beauty of our community. The City has taken steps (no pun intended) to provide the infrastructure for these through planning, construction initiatives and collaboration with local and regional agencies.

The City plan was created with input from the Park District, Kane County Forest Preserve, Kane County Division of Transportation, the Plan Commission, elected officials and City staff. The result is a map of existing trails and future routes/trails that provide a framework for development approvals and potential public works projects. Some trails are new paths and some involve striping and signage of existing roadways to facilitate bicycle traffic.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and Complete Streets Policy can be found on the City website here:

Please contact Chris Gottlieb, Public Works Manager - Engineering  at (630) 377-4405 with questions or comments on how to make our trail system better.
