High Lake Subdivision and the C.A.&E. Electric Line in Winfield

This past fall my daughter and I decided to take a bike ride around Winfield Illinois. We decided to ride the Path that goes through the High Lake Subdivision between Winfield and West Chicago. This path runs along the West Branch of the DuPage River south of Highlake Road in Winfield Illinois. The trail can be entered either just south of the Winfield and Geneva Road intersection or just off of Highlake Road to the west of the Winfield Fire Protection District Fire Station. The High Lake path is a path that connects east to the Winfield Road path to Prince Crossing Road on the west side where this section of the path ends prior to heading into the City of West Chicago.

Along the path route there is the following information sign posted with information on the history of the High Lake Subdivision. You can click on the image below to read the information and history.
