New Trails App Now Available

By published August 07, 2020


Lansing, Ill. – The Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau has launched the brand-new Chicago Southland Trails App. This app is a comprehensive guide to the walking, hiking and biking trails throughout the Chicago Southland region.

App users will be able to utilize an interactive map, featuring the area’s trails. Each trail is color-coded to distinguish their main function (for example, mountain biking-specific trails are designated in green). When clicking on a specific trail, users will see the name of the trail, the surface, the length and, if applicable, the trail’s level of difficulty. Additionally, the Chicago Southland Trails App also features trailhead and parking information.

This app is the first of its kind for the Chicago Southland area. Not only does it encompass all area trails, it also extends beyond the Chicago Southland’s 60 communities to ensure complete listings for users. The app has been integrated into the existing Visit Chicago Southland app, allowing easy access on the go. Users will be able to view hotels, restaurants, events and other amenities in addition to the trail information. The app will continue to be updated monthly to reflect any new trails that open in the Chicago Southland.

“We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Chicago Southland Trails App. After months of compiling information and working with 60 communities and several regional organizations, the app is complete. We are confident that both residents and visitors will find the trails app to be a helpful asset that they can easily utilize during their time here in the Chicago Southland,” said Jim Garrett, President/CEO of the Visit Chicago Southland.

The Chicago Southland Trails App can be accessed online at VisitChicagoSouthland.com/TrailsandItineraries and can also be utilized on the Visit Chicago Southland app, available for download in the Google Play or App Store for free.

The Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau is the official destination management and marketing organization for Chicago’s 60 south and southwest suburbs. The CVB markets the Chicago Southland region as a meetings and conventions, group tours, sports and leisure event destination. For more information, go to VisitChicagoSouthland.com.
