The Green Bay Trail is an asphalt path that runs about 2.24 miles through the Village of Winnetka, from Kenilworth to Glencoe. A narrow strip of limestone screenings on the east side of the path provides an alternate surface for trail users. The trail runs parallel to and just east of the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Metra commuter line. The trail sits above the grade of the surrounding neighborhood for approximately its southern third, and below the grade of the adjacent land for the remainder of its length. Where the grades of the trail and the surrounding neighborhood meet, at the Maple Street, Wilson Street, and Ash Street intersection, a gate provides access to the trail. A bike rack, two benches, drinking fountain, picnic table, wood fencing, and metal barricade are also located at this entrance. Wildflowers, grass, shrubs, and trees line the trail. Access points are provided at the southern end, Winnetka Avenue (stairs), Willow Road (stairs), Maple Street (grade), Winnetka Metra Station (stairs), Pine Street (ramped path), Tower Road (ramped path), Hubbard Woods Metra Station (stairs), and the northern end. A bench is located at each of the entrances at Pine Street and Tower Road. Bike racks are also located at the Winnetka and Hubbard Woods Metra Stations. Signs are located at the south and north entrances to the trail and trail posts are also located along the length.
