great city trail!!

Nice view on the City

Go in the morning on a weekday, and you'll nearly have this area to yourself! Enjoy the many moods of Lake Michigan, great views of the city, and plenty of swamp and water birds

Beautiful views of the city. A great urban trail

Beautiful views of Lake Michigan!

Neat park with a lot of great art and music. Very crowded though.

Crowded and commercial, still gives you good flavor and nice sites.

Nice trail to walk right by the river, can watch the boats pass and see the historic city.

Walked this trail a lot as a tourist. Fantastic trail with so many sights to see, from grand buildings to Lake Michigan.

Nice on Sunday; just enough people to wind through but not too many!

Really fun walk. Great Chicago architecture, river, restaurants, people watching. Great for photography too.

Great trail, but it can get crowded.

Nice running trail. Plenty of shaded sections, great for running in a hot sunny day

just a reminder that there are no restrooms anywhere so be prepared.

There’s many entrances to the 606.

on Navy Pier Walk

It's a walk on a pier, in the middle of a big city, with lots of commercial establishments for dining, drinking and boat tours. For an urban scene and people watching, it's a nice stroll.

This used to be my running trail! Super crowded if the weather is nice, but hit the trail before 7 am and it’s almost entirely yours. Great for running, walking, biking, or rollerblading.

Beautiful trail with restaurants and bars lining the majority of the trail. A great place to appreciate the beautiful architecture that Chicago has to offer.

Not much to look at but a great dog park!

Small trails but link with city street or sidewalk runs and Grant park trails or lakefront make perfect starting point. But run off times to avoid crowds. Great city views. Parking garage beneath the park is perfect... or park along lakefront up north at Montrose harbor for a longer run down to Grant Park area.

2.7 miles, mostly flat, mostly straight. Great for biking, walking or running. I love that there is a place I can ride and run without having to worry about cars. There is a great park on the east end and several smaller parks along the trail. I would rate this as an easy trail.

Easy, paved trails.
Some stairs, depending on where you enter the river walk.
Beautiful on a crisp Chicago morning.

Easiest to take Uber to Hyde Park to his home address probably or to the University of Chicago Law School. Fun walk, friendly neighborhood. We did maybe half of it.

Very modern and interesting.

Even though I'm a NY Mets fan this neighborhood is hallowed ground for National League Baseball fans. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to see the Cubbies play but I did see Phish play Wrigley. Partook in local culture at many of the countless watering holes in the neighborhood

The lake views are gorgeous, and it's a really nice walk. Not so great if you want something challenging.

My favorite route to walk and/or jog. I prefer to take this route when there aren't too many people. Otherwise, great for a solo trip or with friends and family!

Nice route when there isn't too many people! A nice taste of the city life and it's sky scrapers and concludes with a beautiful scene of Lake Michigan.
