So if any one is in the chicago land area and want to check this trail out let me know and we can get together thie week or next week. I also have vids of it on youtube bumsmodified98xj.

Found a trail in Mokena? Since IL has like zero public land with wheeling trails I'd suggest you find out who it belongs to......just saying.

Ha, that almost my parents backyard. They live about about a mile west of there.
Is that by the Garden Nursery?
I think owners & cops look at dirt bikes differently than jeeps.

The area I thought you were talking about is south west of 80 & LaGrande rd intersection? Maybe you we were on east side?

Just be careful wheelin on private land w/o permission is what I think jeffro was getting at.

Gunshots or tickets come to mind. :O

Bad Idea. No the people would not necessarily have said a thing to you. Chances are they came across this "trail" the same way you did, and assumed it was OK.

Stick to places you have permission to be in. Take a drive to the cliffs or the Badlands.
