  • Was a beautiful sunny day so was exceptionally lucky. Made the walk even more enjoyable. Bikes are nearby for hire. Only downfall is no refreshment places.

  • 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!!
