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.

I got rubbed in this location, so sad because love the trail. They destroy my doors to get in, when to the trunk of the car and got everything from my car, computer bag, my personal bag and everything. I will think twice to go again. So sad

Very nice trail. truly loved the dog park on the beach. Had never seen anything like that before. Watching all the dogs play was an amazing site to see.

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