This system provides well-maintained paved trails for biking, blading, and pedestrian traffic. Several options provide varying distances, and mostly flat landscapes provide sights of plains, woods and lakes. Weekends, especially, are busy which require more care in navigation, but it is easily accessible for both residential and working users. This is a great use of public land.

great trails to walk or ride on. But too many walking people clueless that there are bikers and runners on the trail as well

Great retreat to the outdoors not far from city/suburbia. A nice long bike/hike trail system, lake for fishing and boat rentals, open areas for picnics and kite flying. Take the north trail system around to the Elk Preserve and gaze at the 2nd largest North American animals as only Moose stand taller. On the south end past the lake hunt... More

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.

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.
