Greene Valley Forest Preserve Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At Greene Valley Forest Preserve, you’ll find groves of stately oaks, quiet twisting streams, and wide-open swaths of grassland—very likely with a red-tailed hawk or two nearby, waiting for their prey.

Dogs must be on leash no longer than 10 feet except in the preserve’s off-leash areas. This is a multiuse trail, so watch for cyclists and give equestrians the right-of-way. Use caution when crossing the roads."

"Just southeast of beautiful Naperville stands the only “mountain” in Chicagoland, a man-made hill with a scenic overlook, one of the highest places in Illinois. From the top, you can see the sleek Chicago skyline beyond the leafy carpet of DuPage County. In the shadow of the hill, a quiet trail system meanders through forests and grasslands first settled by a farming family before the Civil War. The 2.7-mile Main Trail cuts through a swath of oak woodlands and savannas at the base of Greene Valley Hill, surrounded by a ring of lush wildflowers. These woods are also well known for their diverse wildlife, from herons and hawks to foxes and coyotes." Read more
