Illinois Prairie Path

616 Delles Rd
Wheaton, IL 60187

The Illinois Prairie Path (IPP) was the first successful "rail-to-trail" conversion in the United States and inspired a national rail-to-trail movement in the United States in the mid-1960s. The trail is named for its rare segments of original, thousand year-old prairies. The Illinois Prairie Path corporation (IPPc) is a non-profit group of caring, involved private citizens who aid municipalities in Cook, DuPage and Kane counties maintain and expand the Illinois Prairie Path to ensure that it remains a safe, public, multi-purpose trail. With 62 miles of biking, hiking, jogging, equestrian, and nature trails, people donate their time, talent and resources to preserve and protect this amazing natural resource.
