The 58-mile trail follows the historical path of the Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad. The Illinois Prairie Path’s 16-mile Main Branch is the most urban of its corridors. Beginning in Wheaton, the IPP’s Main Branch follows city streets on extrawide bicycle-friendly sidewalks. Distinct green trail markers shepherd you eastward through the lively shopping district. The trail maintains a distinct urban ambience, passing through the heart of the western suburbs. In Villa Park, about 8 miles from the trailhead, a restored train depot houses historical displays and offers water and restrooms.
