Des Plaines River Trail/Liberty Prairie Reserve Connection

Planning efforts by the Lake County Forest Preserve District are focused on fixing a key gap in the regional trail system by creating a new trail connection linking the 32-mile Des Plaines River Trail with the 5,800-acre public-private Liberty Prairie Reserve in the Grayslake area. This link will make possible a later connection to the 35-mile Millennium Trail, now under development.
