Trail users are advised to respect all construction signs, fences and barricades.
About the DuPage River Trail Segment 4The 2.5-mile extension of the regional trail will begin near 87th Street and the West Branch DuPage River, where the existing trail currently stops, and continue south, travelling along Ring Road and Knoch Knolls Road and winding through Knoch Knolls Park and the DuPage River Sports Complex. The path will include two pedestrian bridges: one over a creek south of 87th Street and one over the West Branch DuPage River in Knoch Knolls Park
The DuPage River trail is designed for non-motorized public use. This nine-mile trail, which was first conceived in a 1992 intergovernmental agreement between the City of Naperville, the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County and the Naperville Park District, is being completed gradually in five segments. Once completed, the trail will extend from Burr Oak Park to 115th Street. In 1997, the Naperville City Council affirmed the city's commitment to the completion of the trail when it was officially adopted as part of the city's Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
