I've wanted to bike along Lake Michigan for years and we finally did it yesterday. It was everything I'd wanted. The path is well-used but not overcrowded. The views are amazing the entire way. We went from north of Irving Park all the way down to the museum campus. Terrific outing.

Yes! This is The 606 :)

Great view of the city just too many people

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.

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

Very easy, but loved the dedicated bike lane which majority of joggers and walkers understand and obey. Lake Michigan on one side, city on other. Total of 15 miles from start of trail (north end) to Navy pier, and back. Free street parking at Lincoln Skate Park (large pay lot available also).
