The Burnham Plan Centennial - Bold Plans, Big Dreams

Program Partners


The Friends of the Calumet-Sag Trail is a membership-supported organization of volunteers, trail users, trail advocates, community representatives, business people, bicyclists, walkers and naturalists who want the Calumet-Sag Trail built and are having fun making that happen. We meet monthly in communities up and down the Cal-Sag and Calumet River to talk about trail progress, the communities that will benefit from it, opportunities to promote the trail and to just be with others who love this trail idea.

The trail runs through 14 communities in Chicago’s south and southwest suburbs following the Cal-Sag Channel, a major shipping route connecting the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal with Calumet Harbor and Lake Michigan.
