What is the Scenic Drives program?
The Scenic Drives program was established nearly 20 years ago with the goal of recognizing roadways and their surrounding features across McHenry County that showcase strong scenic, natural, historic, cultural, archaeological, and/or architectural significance. It does not freeze roads in time from necessary improvements, but does recognize their historic and scenic importance for present and future generations. For additional details, click HERE.
Why Alden Road?
Alden Road’s centuries-long history as an important trail for Native Americans, then settlers and farmers, as well as its past and present scenic views, rural atmosphere, wildlife, and rolling hills all make the Commission believe Alden Road makes for a perfect addition to McHenry County’s list of Scenic Drives.
