Details

Raceway Woods is one of the favorite forest preserves in Kane County for a nice early evening hike. The hills can be a bit challenging, but the scenery will be absolutely gorgeous. The paths are nice and wide and mostly asphalt and limestone.

Raceway Woods is a lovely 122 acre open space tract getting its name from the old race track that once wound around parts of it. The central core of the tract has a fine savannah and mesic woodland with steep banks where pocket seeps trickle down into a clear rippling brook that wanders through several pristine natural areas.

Please note that we will be meeting at the Huntley Road/Main Street entrance to the preserve.
