Time Out says

Ready for a ride to the Wisconsin border? The Des Plaines River Trail follows its namesake waterway all the way from Elmwood Park to the small community of Russell, Illinois—just south of the Wisconsin state line. It's a 56-mile trek that winds through a variety of forests and parks, including the Gurnee Woods Forest Preserve, Adler Memorial Park and the Ryerson Conservation Area. Don't forget to pack a few extra water bottles!
