I lived in McHenry/Fox Lake for 2 years back in the early 80's. There ain't any trails there, period. They put a "hill" sign on a little dip in the road that wouldn't warrent lifting your foot off of the gas pedal here in MO, otherwise it was totally flat.. and treeless.

I feel for you, the (lack of) terrain sucks there.

yea fox lake is pretty much the hilliest area around here. i live in glenview which is 25 mins from chicago.(burbs) and my parents live in antioch.(boarder of wis) i sometimes ride through some fields. but once and awhile ill have someone running out of there house yelling that they're going to call the cops. i just want some cool tails that arent all about mx. my bike just isnt built for that.
