Find A Trail
For the best route to the best scenery the Metroparks has to offer, pick a trail. Trails of varying lengths and surfaces are available in every park. Longer greenway trails extend beyond parks, connecting neighborhoods and places of interest.
Trails By Park
Trails in each of the Metroparks offer a variety of distances and experiences, from winding dirt paths through the woods and prairies, to hard-surface all-purpose trails suitable for bicycling and skating.
