Formally known as Ned Brown Preserve in the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Busse Woods is a vastly different experience from that of Burnidge. Busse Woods sees much more traffic, about 2.5 million visitors per year, according to the Forest Preserves of Cook County. This amount of traffic rivals that of Yellowstone National Park. So, do not expect your Busse Woods experience to bring an isolated nature connection. You can, however, expect nearly 11 miles of trail (about eight in a paved loop around the preserve), fishing, boating, numerous picnic areas and shelters, and a model airplane field. Running at Busse brings a feeling of camaraderie and joy of seeing lots of people out and about, enjoying all the outdoors has to offer. Additionally, numerous running events are held or run through this location, so it makes an especially useful training location.
