After following the Salt Creek Trail through a series of forest preserves straddling Cook and DuPage Counties, you’ll explore quiet residential neighborhoods within a handful of western suburbs that grew up alongside the railroad between Chicago and Aurora. Plan to spend some time gawking at the attractive public buildings and many historic homes in Riverside, a village designed by the great landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. Wrap up the ride with a loop through Oak Park and a brief tour of the oldest Jewish cemetery in the region.
