Took kids for fun fishing on 9/6/14. Perfect place for young kids to catch some small Bluegill. Plenty of parking available. Also there was a restroom and tube well nearby. Perfect! Recommend carrying a bug spray at this time of the year.

There is something for everyone at Busse Woods. the trials are phenomenal for running, walking, biking, rollerblading,… you name it. Now, two bridges cross over Higgins so the trail loop is fluid, you really never have to stop and the scenery is one you can appreciate over and over again. The new boat house provides rentals of ranging from canoes... More

I lived in Chicago for 5 years and all I knew about Busse Woods was that it was a nice looking forest to speed through between Elk Grove and Schaumburg. Wow, was I mistaken. Upon looking for a trail for my marathon training, I uncovered this 7-mile beauty. I was incredibly impressed by the views of the lakes, elks, and... More

Nice paved trails for walking or biking. Very pleasant woods and meadows. Inexpensive boat rentals. This is a very sizable park area that allows you to feel like you've escaped into nature for a while.

The Woods is a great place to ride your bicycle or just walk the trails. There are so many scenic views of lakes, prairie areas, and woods to view as you ride or walk. The trails are sometimes gently rolling and they have now built a pedestrian bridge over Higgins Road at the expressway. There are over 6 miles of... More

Busse Woods has an extensive trail system. The main loop is a little over 6 miles of paved bike/walking path, but there are several miles of additional paved spur paths, as well as many side trails through the woods. It will take you through woods and fields, beside lakes, over dams, and around the elk grove, where you can watch... More

A heavily wooded biking/hiking nature preserve that is heavily wooded. It is laced with ponds throughout and is a peaceful place to take a walk, ride your bike or have a family picnic.

We love Busse Woods, the trails are very nice for a run or bike ride. My favorite new discovery is the boat rental place on the water. They have canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, etc. Friendly people who provide good service and very reasonable prices.

We traveled to the Schaumburg area for the holiday weekend and wanted to take a good walk on July 4th. We chose the Busse Woods Trail System. It is a beautiful, paved path that winds through timber, along lakes and past an elk habitat. Seeing elk on our walk was definitely a surprise! There were plenty of restrooms available along... More

Felt guilty spending so much time indoors shopping at the nearby Oakton Antiques Centre (they do have a.c. & cookies),so I drove over to the woods for some fresh air and sunshine. And to see the elk, of course! The trail was crowded with cyclists, skaters, joggers and walkers like me. While I enjoyed the paved trail, it was not... More
