Busy at times but well worth the number of people for the views of the lake & city!

Best biking trail in Chicago. South of Soldier Field is the best part of the trail with fewer people and more trees. The views of downtown from Promontory point are incredible.

It has such an amazing view and enough space for joggers, bikers and walking pets.

Great trail for a large city. However it is definitely not a trail you would take for solitude. Bicyclists and joggers are plentiful.
