Mapleleaf Pathway

Railroad Signal

Mapleleaf Pathway was built on part of the Chicago Northwestern Railroad system that formed the outline of a maple leaf on the rail map. This 2 mile trail is scenic with a small marsh and creek running alongside it. Abundant wildlife and plants can be found along the trail and is a local favorite for berry picking. History is rich in this area with an old railroad signal taking you back in time.
