It would be nice to see F.D staff or pet owners clean the paths maybe once a year Why doesn't the trail continue west to Prairie ave there is a lane that was constructed on the bridge but goes nowhere .Total waste of money

My husband and I ride bicycles together and this trail is one of our favorites. So many places to hop on the trail and start from. We usually start at the zoo. We enjoy seeing all the wildlife: deer, ducks, geese, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.

Uncrowded, the well maintained wide path winds through The Chicago Forest Preserve. You can forget that you are near an enormous metropolis and immerse yourself in nature, but you can always take a break for food or beer in the friendly, mid-American, towns and villages...More

Very nice path through the forest preserves that is great for biking, walking, even jogging. There are mile markers if you are looking to go a specific distance too.

This popular trail is near my home and a treat to walk or ride my bike. For me, I prefer earlier in the day when it is not as crowded but it's just fine when throngs of dog walkers/bicyclists/runners/roller bladers/walkers are there sharing the trail...More

This review applies to the southern end of the trail running from Brookfileld to Oak Brook. This paved, well-marked trail follows the fairly substantial Salt Creek through the Cook County forest preserves. Much of the trial is in the woods away from traffic and development...More

This is a trail in the woods. It is quiet, peaceful and serene. It's an easy trail. It's beautiful the way it goes along the creek. A day spent one the salt creek trail is an awesome day!

Salt Creek and salt trail are excellent nature excursions. Easily accessed, we'll marked trail. Kayaking is a little.more difficult for entry and exit. But the wife and I always see plenty of deer, birds, beavers and other small critters.
