Prairie Trail

Whether it’s a morning trek, a family weekend ride or part of your weekly fitness regime, hike, pedal or roll along over 45 miles of trails offered throughout McHenry County on the Prairie Trail. Stretching 26 miles from Algonquin to just shy of the Wisconsin State Line, the Prairie Trail connects eight McHenry County communities. There are several scenic and recreational stopping points along the Prairie Trail, including the ox River and Larsen Prairie. Main access points are located north of Algonquin, along Main Street in Crystal Lake, at Petersen Park in McHenry and in Glacial Park north of Ringwood.
