Kankakee River Trail

5314 W. Rt. 102, Bourbonnais, IL 60914


The Kankakee River Trail is fairly wooded and runs primarily through Kankakee River State Park. Walkers, bicyclists, and cross-country skiers can enjoy more than ten miles of trail along the north bank of the river between Bourbonnais and Wilmington

Approximately 3 miles on the east end of the trail is crushed stone, while the rest is paved. Trail-goers looking for more of a challenge will like the hill climbs on the west end of the trail.

An equestrian trail is available on the south side of the river from April through October. Beginning in late January, after a good snowfall, snowmobilers can also use the south-bank trail.
