What do you think of Cook County forest preserves?

The Cook County Forest Preserve District has one of the largest networks of bike and pedestrian trails in the country. There are more than 200 miles of multi-use trails, including the newest trail in Riverdale. 

/The Forest Preserve District of Cook County recently launched a process to create a Recreation Master Plan, and they want your input.
