Let’s Go Biking, Lake County!

Did you know the Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) has about 60 miles of bike paths and bike lanes as part of the Lake County highway system? This is part of the over 550 total miles of trails and bikeways, connecting forest preserves and communities throughout the county! Plan your next trip by using the Bike Lake County application, where you can find all the trails, paths, and lanes you can use in Lake County.

Dan Krill from Lake County’s Planning, Building & Development Department has been using these bike paths and bike lanes while riding his bike to work every day (even in the winter) for the past seven years. Watch this video to hear his story, and learn how LCDOT continues to consider non-motorized travel a high priority.
