  • Especially on a day with nice weather a walk to experience the trail and the views are worth it. I live here and walk the trail on most days.  more »

  • A great place to walk, ride and enjoy. A lot going on and a nice way to feel part of the area. We were there on a picture perfect day so I'm sure that helped but nice little places to stop for snacks ...  more »

  • I run or ride here very often. I've ran here many times, before i moved to Chicago as a visitor. It never gets boring, seeing the beautiful Lakefront trail. Definitely 5 Stars!
  • Utterly calming trail for bikers as well as for walk. You can go for a segway tour or rent a family bike(2-4 seater) or also there are awesome 3 tire bicycles. This trail starts few yards away from millennium park and connects you to Navy Pier. Would advise a walk to navy pier through this lakefront trail.
  • Great bike and running trail along the lakefront. Gets crowded on the weekends and during the afternoon commute especially near the Loop. Don't skip on the southern part which I prefer for riding as there are fewer people and vehicle crossings.
  • I went biking with my family here, It was great. You get everything when you come here; your great Chicago views, great ocean views, awesome lush green scenery and more. I would say that this is a must go if you are visiting Chicago.
  • Super cool place to visit and take great pics and have lunch on the grass. Beach is right around the corner. Alder planetarium is a pokemon go hangout lol great for the kids. I love it!!
