The Desplaines River trail is getting better lately with bridges being built to cross the river in Southern Gurnee and run
further South and west I believe. They plan on connecting many trails that already exist with the desplaines trail in the future hopefully it happens. I havn't gotten a chance yet this winter to even go out on it. It gets ripped up and is bare
after one night with 4 or less inches of snow, and we've only gotten one 3-4 inch snowfall. What a joke. I need to start riding on the Chain o lakes and get a trailer.
