Summary:
The section of pathway that is discussed is a paved pathway that current ends and does not cross the I-74 bridge along Lake of the Woods Road. However, the State is bidding the replacement of the bridge; which is funded for FY 2014 and includes a 10 foot pathway separated from the vehicular lanes that will connect the Village of Mahomet pathway to the Forest Preserve pathway with one continuously paved dedicated path.

Summary:
It is a very short trail. It is mostly paved. The scenery through the park is very pretty but then it ends near some houses and it ain't too pretty. Not much to write home about this one.
