The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Normantown Trail

Trail Location and Access 

Normantown Trail travels 2.6 miles from Vermont Cemetery Preserve south to 119th Street in Naperville. The northern 2.43 miles of this trail segment are paved, and the 0.17-mile southern portion is a shared-use road which allows vehicles to access Rockwell Lane from 119th Street.

The trail is jointly owned and managed by the Forest Preserve District, the Village of Plainfield and the City of Naperville. Eventually, the Forest Preserve District will own and manage 2.3 miles of the total path distance.

The trail may be accessed from Vermont Cemetery Preserve. It also travels through the Forest Preserve’s Wolf Creek Preserve, located south of 111th Street in Naperville. In the future, another 1-mile section of the trail will be constructed from 119th Street to 127th Street by the Village of Plainfield and the Plainfield Township Park District. This will link to an already completed 1.1-mile trail segment from 127th Street to 135th Street, which is owned by the Plainfield Township Park District.

Once this section is added, Normantown Trail will extend 4.7 miles from Vermont Cemetery Preserve in Naperville to 135th Street in Plainfield.
