Road bikingBugsGreat!

The only reason this isn’t 5 stars is because the trail(s) can get a bit crowded at high traffic times. Most recently I went for an evening ride, around 9:30 pm and the lanes were wide open. Weather was perfect and the view of downtown spectacular.

Start on the south side and work your way up! The skyline from the south is and always will be a better view and it's great to have it as your "guide to halfway" focal point through the first half of the trail. Note that the trail from Ohio to North is closed and beaches are not currently accessible. Also, wear sunscreen! You are walking in direct sunlight for almost the entirety of the trail. For a city hike, it sure is spectacular!

Hiking

Speed hiked on the west (grassy) side of Lake Shore Drive (not the concrete/beach side), between 67th Jeffrey (Jackson Park) and 47th Street (Hyde Park), which covers part of the Bobolink Meadow Trail. This side is less traveled, with relatively no foot paths alongside the Drive. 70% of my workout was on grass and not on any trail. Total mileage was 6.6 mi @ 15:25/mi pace on flat terrain. It was a clear, sunny day. This side gives an all-encompassing, fuller perspective of lakefront beaches, parking, Jackson Park harbors and lagoons, golf courses, driving range, exercise park for dogs, tennis courts, and the museum — not noticed in detail when driving in either direction. All Jackson Park attractions are accessible by foot within a 1.5-mile radius after parking. Beyond Jackson Park (north of 57th Street, ending at 47th Street) is a detailed view of local lodging and businesses along the Drive — this is the lakefront side of Hyde Park. Lodging is available less than a mile from the museum and Jackson Park. Hyde Park has it’s own attractions on the lakefront, and further inland, all within walking distance from lodging. This turned out to be an appreciable speed hike in a way that I had not expected. It was a great outing. If only there were foot trails it would be near perfect (4 out of 5 stars). No photos.

HikingBridge out

I was so proud of myself for doing this entire walk! I started where All Trails says the finish is (the south shore end). I’m glad I started there because it’s a sketchy neighborhood and am glad I didn’t end up there at night. I took the redline to the Metra to get to the start. A guy followed me for a couple blocks and there was no one else around. But then I lost him and found the start of the trail and everything went better from there. It is a beautiful and long walk. There gorgeous views of Chicago along the way... There are plenty of bathrooms along the way but they were ALL CLOSED for the season. So I had to find places to pee and then after about 4 hours I decided to go and walk up Broadway instead of the Lake path so I could duck into a Starbucks if I needed to along with the way... I do recommend doing it if you have a free day!!

It's a great trail I've used many times, but it can be quite busy and traffic noise is more noticeable than I like.
