Trail Directions
If you drive there, you'll need to find parking on main street, which shouldn't be too hard to do...as they have gravel shoulders along the road. The trailhead is on the crossing of main street with the prairie path in glen ellyn. take the prairie path just a little bit and you'll see the terrain start to rise on your right. find an opening and climb up the ravine...this is a good leg workout! you'll find the singletrack at the top just past the houses.

Summary:
Gnarly! That's all I can say. Pete, you worthless piece of crap! You put a post about a trail that's 1 mile. Call it a good leg work out??? Dude, the climb is 30'!! You really are a dork. I think I saw you riding there one day. Are you about 4 years old with training wheels?? I thought so. Extreme kid!

Recommended Route:
All of it!

Pete's got a whole list of extreme, hardcore trails. Most aren't as long and technical as this one. Hook up with Pete. He'll tell you more about the 2 mile singletrack heaven he found in Wheaton and the extreme 20 feet of downhill he found in Villa Park. Pete, you're off the hook dude. Crazy MoFo.

Could this Pete email me that 2 mile track in Wheaton? I'm hitting Glen Ellyn up tomorrow, but I'm up for a better trail. rhl429@gmail.com

Summary:
Pete, you dork! This is Not worth anybody visiting! It is less than a mile of easy trail with rocks and loose dirt. If that's extreme for you. Stay on the path you freak! Also dummy; It's off Hill street. Not Main Street.

Recommended Route:
Stay on prairie path

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For Pete only! How about the kids sandbox at the corner of Main and Hill St. EXTREME DUDE!

Summary:
The same German Shepard came after me, the owners of the house let it loose when ever they see mountain biker's. They think the land belongs to them, even though it's owned by the railroad.
Be aware of lots of broken glass bottles.

Recommended Route:
Off the Prarie Path just East of the tunnel for the tracks.
