Cedar View Trail, 4.5 miles in length, connects the two communities of Fairfield and Libertyville. The first segment of Cedar View Trail follows the old railroad right-of-way for approximately one mile to the Cedar View Trail Bridge.  The trail then continues through Cedar Creek Timber to 223rd Street. From there the trail follows 223rd to Hackberry Way to Hemlock Avenue north of Libertyville. The east shoulder of Hemlock Avenue has been designated for trail use. Cedar View Trail is also connected to the 18 mile Fairfield Loop Trail plus it leads into Jefferson County Park's north entrance and connects to the seven miles of trail within the park.
