You can Park at the Jon J Duerr Forest Preserve and take the bicycle trail towards Elgin.
You can Park at Seba Park and take the bicycle trail towards St.Charles.
The quickest way would be to park on Hancock Ave, walk along Rt.31 until the bridge, go under the bridge and follow the train tracks.
There is a closer parking spot on the East Side, but it's still under construction and closed to the public.
