DescriptionOne of the few spots within Chicago's city limit for trail running, Schiller Woods offers a combination of wide and narrow terrain, and the trail winds through the woods to offer a few miles of run terrain you can't get elsewhere in the city. It is a popular spot for trail race, as Muddy Monk and Universal Sole have held events here before. While it seems like it'd be a great spot to mountain bike, much like Palos on the southwest side, I do not believe that you can mountain bike at Schiller Woods.
