This entire stretch of the GIT follows one of the oldest and most well-known trails in the nation. The route follows the Illinois Prairie Path through DuPage County into Kane County and the City of Elgin. The 29-mile Prairie Path flows seamlessly into the Fox River Trail to create a beautiful suburban greenway for safe cycling.
