The Green Bay Trail is an asphalt path that runs about 2.24 miles through the Village of Winnetka, from Kenilworth to Glencoe, paralleling the Metra commuter line.  A narrow strip of limestone screenings on the east side of the path provides an alternate surface for trail users, which include walkers, joggers, and bicyclists.  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.  Mile markers, benches, bike racks, a picnic table, and a drinking fountain are located along the trail, as are wildflower gardens.
