Paved bike path that starts on North Side of Chicago, through Evanston and into Skokie

The 2 mile portion we walked was just that "a walk" - not a hike. The description says it follows the river but it doesn't mention it also follows the constant traffic in McCormick Rd. We were looking for a hike in a more woodsy area. The path does share a nice bike trail.

Very nice path. It can get crowded later in the day, but first thing in the morning, it's great.
