Nicely maintained hike/bike trail with great views and access to the Fox River and downtown Saint Charles. In the city area at least, make it a round trip excursion and travel on both sides of the river.

This trail is a great place to log miles for training or pleasure riding. Trails are paved and recently improved between the Batavia Quarry and Butterfield Road. Trees have been trimmed back for safety and viewing of trail and river.

My husband and I completely enjoy and regularly use the Fox river trail- our primary path is St Charles to Batavia but we have also covered McHenry to Aurora. We avoid going thru Elgin to avoid the hugely steep hill- we have driven our car...More

My favorite stretch is from St. Charles as the north starting point, going as far south as North Aurora. It mixes a rural feel with some interesting small towns. Also, in many stretches, you can bike on trails on both sides... More
