Kane County & Region 5 Snowmobile Trails are provided by local Snowmobile Clubs and wind through the beautiful Counties of Kane, Dekalb, Mchenry and Boone. With the help of many land owners and farmers, these trails help connect through Northern Illinois and surrounding cities. Region 5 trails are easily accessed with many unloading zones and sponsors who also provide to the development of the trails. When enough snow permits, Region 5 trails will be groomed throughout.
The Great Western Trail is 14 miles of an abandoned railway from St. Charles to the DeKalb County Line. The Great Western Trail crosses small streams and is a place of quiet beauty, a linear wildlife refuge, and truly one of the finer experiences available in Kane County.
