Ever wondered if Chicago has some hidden biking spots amidst its iconic towers and lake views? Well, we found one. Say hello to the Indian Road Woods bike trail. Having tried quite a few Chicago trails myself, we’d say this one has a special charm. Let's break it down for you.
Indian Road Woods offers a cool 4-mile route. Though it only rises about 28 feet in elevation, every bit of it adds to the fun. Plus, with its "out & back" style, you can get to know the trail really well, tackling its quirks twice in one go (if you wish and are capable of such a challenge, of course).
Additional Trail Features
It’s not just about pedaling. The scenery’s pretty neat. There are trees overhead, the rustle of leaves, and oh, you get glimpses of Chicago's skyline now and then. It’s a fun mix of the calm woods and the buzzing city vibes.
In a nutshell, Indian Road Woods is a little biking gem in the city. Whether you're local or just visiting, it's a cool way to see a greener side of Chicago. Happy cycling!
