According to Chicago River.org:
Forty miles north of downtown Chicago, the Chicago River begins its journey in Park City, Illinois, where a small storm sewer enters the Greenbelt Forest Preserve and forms the headwaters of the Skokie River. From there it flows south through Lake County and Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Highwood, Highland Park, then Glencoe where it reaches the Chicago Botanic Garden in Cook County. Immediately south of the Botanic Gardens, the Skokie River forms the Skokie Lagoons in the Cook County Forest Preserves in Winnetka. It then continues south to merge with the Middle Fork in the suburb of Northfield to form the Upper North Branch.
