Fox River Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Located only 30 miles west of downtown Chicago, the Fox River Trail has plenty of great things going for it. As this pathway hugs the Fox River between Aurora and Algonquin, it passes numerous community parks and forest preserves. In Elgin the Fox River Trolley Museum sits alongside the trail. In Geneva the 300-acre Fabyan Forest Preserve contains a restored Dutch windmill. Also alongside the trail at Fabyan are a pristine Japanese garden and the Villa Museum, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Some of the towns the trail passes through—such as Elgin, Geneva, and Batavia—contain attractive urban riverfront areas with flower and sculpture gardens, pedestrian bridges, and scenic walkways."
