Trail Conditions



Heavy rains may cause flooding and/or washouts on some of our trails. Please use caution and keep an eye out for flooding on our trails after heavy rains. To report concerns in the preserves, please go to “Report a Concern.” District crews will continue to monitor and make trail repairs as time allows.


Maple Meadows  

From July 23 – 27, District crews will be sealcoating the parking lot at Maple Meadows golf course in Wood Dale. Dates may change due to weather delays, so check back frequently.  


Herrick Lake  

Sometime the week of June 25 – 27, District crews will be sealcoating some of the asphalt trails at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in Wheaton. The east trail from the lake loop trail and east parking lot to the concession stand and east picnic shelter will be done first. Dates may change due to weather delays, so check back frequently.   


Fullersburg Woods  

From Aug. 6 – 17, District crews will be sealcoating the parking lot at Fullersburg Woods in Oak Brook. Dates may change due to weather delays, so check back frequently.  


Spring Creek Reservoir Floodgate Replacement Project

In early March DuPage County Stormwater Management will begin work to replace the floodgate that separates Spring Brook from the reservoir at Spring Creek Reservoir Forest Preserve. 

For visitors’ safety the Forest Preserve District will need to temporarily close the northeastern end of the parking lot and the eastern half of the looped trail, including access to the three minishelters. Visitors should be careful near construction areas and follow all signs and workers’ instructions. 

Construction will be complete over summer 2018.
