Laima and I recently ran the section of the Trail that runs from downtown Lemont, Illinois, then in and around the Heritage Quarries site. For the most part, the trail is either crushed gravel, dirt, or broken-down asphalt. Sections of the trail are open to motorized traffic, which probably consists mostly of fishermen heading to the quarries or hikers and runners like us.
This is an easy section of trail to get to, has amenities at the Lemont end, plus several porta-potties along the way. Basically, it’s an out and back route, with several loops to keep things interesting. We ended up running around 5.5 miles, which is just about the most you could get out of it, though creative route planning could add some distance yet.
