I live by Busse Woods and I frequently ride the main loop path on my bike. The main loop is about 7.5 miles and there are some spurs that can add to your distance. It can be quite crowded on weekends and days that the weather is nice, but most weekdays it is a nice place to visit.

I exercise in Busse Woods multiple times per week 3 seasons a year. It's free and I get to be out in nature. We could all use more nature in our lives. The forest preserve is kept up very well with scenic routes that never get old. The pavement has very few bumps in it, almost perfect even though it... More

Busse Woods is a good place to go fishing or just for a walk. The only thing that has disturbed me is the large picnic area where a lot of alcohol is present. Some of those crowds are unfriendly to people not of their own racial back ground. The lakes are good for a paddle with your canoe or kayak.
