Solar-lighted trails are open for the season in two Lake County forest preserves.

A 1.3-mile fitness trail at Old School Forest Preserve in Libertyville and a 1.65-mile hilly section of the Millennium Trail adjacent to the Winter Sports Area at Lakewood Forest Preserve near Wauconda are available through March 8.


Preserves close at sunset but the trails illuminated with solar lights and adjacent parking lots will remain open until 9 p.m., daily through Sunday.

Bicycles and horses are not permitted on the lighted trails after sunset.

Dogs are allowed but must be leashed. Visit
