    The southern kettles are fast and rolling for the most part. With mostly singletrack, and 40 plus miles of trail. The fastest way from Chicago is 94, to hwy 50 west, to Rt 12 west, to H and take a right at the Lagrange General Store. The John Muir parking lot will be on your left. If you are going this weekend try and get there early because it will be packed by 11.

    Best trails in the Midwest, AFAIAC, and a breeze from Chicago. About 15 minutes north of Lake Geneva.

    Do both Miur and Emma Carlin trails. You won't forget it. Bring lots of water bottles.

    Wide track would be complementary for most of it, but you can have a fast ride and cover distance if your ride consists of both areas and the connector in between. The connector requires a short bit of road. It has grown out of ski and horse trails so the trail design is terrible in places, but the new sections are designed right and are single track relative to the rest and most bike areas. The repaired areas and many who have flocked to road bikes have helped the experience a lot.

    Fastest way to get there? That would depend on where you are specifically, but Hwy 12 and Hwy 50 to 12 are probably best.

    Have fun!

    was there for the first two days of labor day weekend and was great. trails in very good condition,... and not to many riders as for labor day weekend. some heavy duty riders pumped the trails several times a day, it was fun to watch it as they were going in and out of the trail. although, the drive from chicago and back sucks (as always).
    thnx for the replies.
